There are diverse materials you can use to create architecture models. These materials range from simple paper to more complex blocks. There’s no limit to how you build your own model.
One of the most notable architecture models is that of houses and villas. The models of Mountain Villas in La Tzoumaz, Switzerland are some of these.
The scale model of the residential villas shows the detailed features of the four villas mounted on the floor plan that provides potential buyers the idea about the sloped land placement of the villas. Some details of the facades and roof finishes are well-represented for the buyers can choose the apartment that best fits their needs.
Scale modeling is also being used in school especially as one of the requirements in completing a certain course. An example of this a graduation project on inclined terrain.
Dioramas are also examples of scale modeling. Dioramas provide everyone the detailed features of a certain landscape to be used as guides. The interactive scale model of the Visiting Centre of the Iron Gates Natural Park is another example of an architecture model.
The scale model is used in the promotion of a park. The model shows the land formation of the Natural Park and of the neighboring places. This huge model takes a month to be completed.
Architecture modeling also enters the world of ornaments and games. The Skyline Chess of first-name-only architects Chirs and Ian has the theme of the different landmark buildings of London and New York City.
In this skyline-themed chess set, each building has been carefully selected to represent each particular chess piece.
Certainly, scale modeling or architecture modeling finds its useful role in the society. It provides an avenue to improve marketing. It also helps in practicing students’ creativity. It extends its use in residential and real estate planning, urban planning, and building ensembles.
