Mark Szczerbicki - DESIGN STUDIO
Models in the Design Process MS1401
The physical model is one of the most approachable forms of architectural representation. While models are relevant to the architectural community, they also possesses a certain magic and mystery which plays on the imagination of children and adults alike, witha universal appeal thatcuts through jargon and goes directly to the essence of an idea. Despite this, there is a of lack of research and critical discussion regarding model-making among local practitioners.
This talk by Mark Szczerbicki provides an insight into the long-established tradition of innovation and experimentation with physical models by practices based in Europe. It is intended to act as a springboard to revitalize a more vigorous attitude to model-making, especially in the context of the ever-increasing use of digital models in today's practice.
