This book focuses on the inspiring possibilities for modeling the built environment with all the different media and techniques available. In describing the use of different models in different contexts, the book provides a practical guide to how and why models are used and what they are used for.

Developed with input from technical and creative advisors Jim Backhouse and Scott Miller, the book provides detailed, visual step-by-step guides to:

  • casting a plaster model from a silicone mould
  • casting concrete components from a silicone mould
  • using plasticine to develop form
  • working with clay
  • casting a concrete model
  • modelling a geodesic dome
  • cutting and soldering metal
  • 3D ABS printing/rapid prototyping
  • 3D powder printing
  • CNC milling and routing
  • creating a realistic photomontage

Opening with a brief history of model making - from ornate 18th century presentation models designed to convince skeptical patrons, to models of utopian 20th century urban masterplans - the book also touches upon the future of of the craft. Dunn has separated the remaining text into three main volumes: physical model making, materials and media; models used during design development; and how models are used by architects and students today. Together, these overarching topics allow for further in-depth investigations into the workshop environment, methods for finishing and communicating models, alongside examples of models pushing the boundaries of the craft itself.

The accessibility of this text spans all abilities. From a section listing the nineteen fundamental tools for the model maker (and why they are important), to photographic studies of the typical machines used during model making, the book also acts as an invaluable reference guide. Getting to grips with scale and materials - such as styrofoam, acrylic, resin, clay, casting materials, steel, and those used in rapid prototyping - is of considerable use to both starting and returning students, as well as those designers (re)acquainting themselves with the most current techniques.
