Architectural Review: ‘Architects do it with Models’ Article

Happy New Year and welcome back! Here’s a quick link to get you started before the main announcements for the coming months. Hope you all had a relaxing break and we look forward to seeing you back in the workshop soon!


Architectural Review wrote an article last year looking at the history of architectural models in 16 examples. The article shows the interesting progressive spectrum of materials, methods of construction and varied use from 4600BC to the present day.

Model Archive and our Photography Studio Proposal

Over the last few weeks we have been trying to clear our extremely cluttered model store to record and archive all of our historic models. This has proved a huge success and brought to light some great pieces we didn’t know we had! The collection is fascinating and gives a broad range of styles and techniques used over the last 30 or so years.

Model Store (15)H-08 (3)SI-03 (3)In ordering our store we have created some new space in which we hope to set up a photographic space to document your future work. This facility, providing we get funding, should be available sometime in early 2014. With this in place you will be in a better position to record your work before it leaves the building with high quality photos. This will also allow us to create a complete record of our produce and add to the already thriving Blog we have here.
