Many firms outsource their presentation models to commercialmodelmaking firms, where versatility, experience and, inrecent times, modelmakers’ interpretation come to bear.Modelmaking for architects and designers has become anindustry in its own right, with the best firms offering high levelsof precision, craftsmanship and, especially, speed in order tomeet international deadlines. Modelmaker Richard Armigerobserves that ambitious presentation models

Presentation/exhibition models

            Perhaps the most familiar type of architectural model,due to its frequency in the public eye, is the presentationor exhibition model that typically describes a wholebuilding or project design and signifies a point inthe design process at which the designer is ready tocommunicate the proposal to external audiences such asclients

           Lighting models may be used to produce both qualitativeand quantitative data. On the one hand, they may allowthe designer to perceive the effects of daylight or artificiallight throughout the spaces modelled; on the other,they may be used to record more accurate informationin relation to various amounts or combinations of lightsources

Interior architecture models

          Interior architecture or design is widely recognized as adiscipline in its own right, and there are many publishedprecedents and much information available on thesubject. Depending on the scale of the design proposal, itcan frequently be useful for architects to make modelsof interior space for both design development andcommunication purposes. Such

                 As the name suggests, these models are primarilyconcerned with testing ideas for a project’s structure.These are very useful models from an educational point ofview, as they enable both a student and a tutor to gaugehow well the student understands the complex processof construction. This type of model

An important difference between a descriptivepresentation model and an explorative model is thatthe former seeks to provide a holistic view of thefinished project, whilst the latter may be produced toinvestigate particular components of the design. As theform of a new design emerges, a whole series of morespecialized building models may be constructed thatrespond to questions

The experimental nature of developing a design idea canlead to new avenues of exploration, which will often provideunforeseen and exciting results. Models can be a very usefulmedium through which to both generate and then furtherexplore ideas that may be subsequently applied across arange of scales. Considered as modes of inquiry, models acilitate the pursuit of novel ideas that

Design development models

         Design development or ‘process’ models are effectivelythree-dimensional sketches through which novel ideasare explored and tested but not necessarily concluded.The relationship between design development modelsand final presentation models is not always clear. Notall presentation models are the result of a sequence ofdesign development models; in some cases a presentationmodel is a design

Block/massing models

            This type of model is similar to the site and city modelsdescribed above, in so much as it provides a simplifiedcommunication of a design’s various components ratherthan detailed information. Depending on the extentof the design, the various components may representthe different spaces of a single building or a numberof

Site/city models

           This type of model represents urban or naturalenvironments. Following on from the concept model,it is the first step in the actual representation processsince it shows the design’s relationship with the existingenvironment. In terms of urban space, it is important toshow how the context changes with the addition of anew structure.
