              The group of overall architectural scale models is divided into urban architectural models, building architectural models, structural architectural models, models of interior spaces and special architectural models. All of them have in common the description, first of all, of the special, artistic and constructive qualities of an edifice. In addition, they take special attention of the following:

The incorporating the projected building into the existing environment. This means integrating into the model of a land: the topographical features, such as the relief, the existing vegetation and the surface type. In addition, the overall model shows the existing buildings to which the designed buildings are to be added. It is also necessary to represent the most important characteristics of the movement through neighbourhood. After choosing the design goal, more attention must be given to the graphic and spatial aspects of the shape, functional organization or constructional features. Depending on the model, the following properties may be of particular importance:

The form:

  • The relationships between form and buildings
  • The shape and size of each space
  • The light and type of lighting
  • The type of texture, colour and material
  • The visual relationships

The function: 

  • The order of the edifices and exterior spaces
  • The delimiting of the interior and exterior spaces
  • The use

The construction

  • The subdivision of urbanization and edifices depends mainly on the chosen level. In the field of urbanization architectural models (levels 1: 1100, 1: 500 and in special cases 1: 200), the groups of edifices and their different relations are represented by simple volumes. Instead, building models highlight their constructive, formal and functional qualities. According to the chosen level, the edifice is reproduced in its entirety or just in a detail.

The Urbanism Scale architectural models

The urbanistic architectural models are used to be built above the base proportionate to the topographic layouts. The urbanization model is used as a set of layouts and general situations (1: 1000 to 1: 500 levels) or is limited to showing only one side (1: 500 to 1: 200 levels). While in the field of urban design (centres, streets, landscapes) it is necessary to elaborate at a higher level (1: 100 to 1:50) in the sets of architectural models, when it comes to learning the ordering plans, lower levels of 1: 1000 (1: 2500) can be used as well.

The Conceptual Scale Model

The mission of an urbanization model is to create a major idea of the importance of the built volume, its distribution on the territory and the existence of urban spaces. At the base of a topographic lmodel, special hypotheses and functions can easily be proven with very easy to model materials and objects found.

The Working Scale Model

On the one hand, the working model demonstrates the pre-existence of the immeasurable design with its own quality of an execution layout and, on the other hand, allows us to change and modify the designed elements. The already planned construction will have a more concrete form. Alternatives are built as architectural models that can be added.

The Execution Scale Model

In a precise and detailed manner, the execution model reflects the final integration of the designed building into the existing territory.
