Description: Advances in computer aided design have proven to be an invaluable tool for the architect and designer, yet Frank Gehry still begins his creative process by making ldquo;simpleldquo; models out of modest materials. Drawings and video, while an essential part of the design process, are still not substitutes for the tactile sensation one receives from a scale model. Drawing on 20 years experience in art and architecture, the author has developed this book on model making as it applies to students and professional of the built environment. It will illustrate a multitude of techniques and the use of a wide variety of materials, providing a solid foundation for students and professionals to create and enjoy three-dimensional model making.
