Physical models for interior design: models simulate various

Physical models for interior design: models simulate various kinds of construction & various kinds of spaces

Physical models are valuable to designing people

Physical models appeal to our senses in ways that are fundamentally human.

Physical models are real in ways that are unlike digital models. Physical models raise possibilities that other modes do not.

paper models of building sized spaces

simple form, surface, and opening model

wood models of wall, structure

realistic space and objects

delicate pieces, massive pieces, planes, lines:

for a model to be engaging, interesting, there must be a variety of contrasting pieces

A physical model needs to contain something that is

visually interesting!

Physical models need to contain pieces that are:

surfaces and lines, large and small, thick and thin, open and closed, monochrome and polychrome.

The level of detail, or visual articulation, can suggest that quality in the actual, built, space, even though it is not going to be

exactly the same in the built space as in the model.

simple models a simple model is like a short phrase

hi whats up

photo collages

a massing study

A more complex model is like a sentence: this is going to be a space with repeated elements, each of which is a

geometric form, connecting to a base that is a contrasting solid

a very large vertical section drawing

These models contain many pieces. This is why the models are interesting.

a suggestive, or possibility-raising model

models made of heavy white paper, grey chipboard clean, simple materials can create a coherent and unified model.

regular, geometric, repetition of pieces
