Why Make Architecture Models?

    Here's why you should be making physical models of your architecture. Even with so many digital tools that are faster and more accurate and easier to change, I still build physical scale models of my architecture. I treat building models as a form of three-dimensional sketching. The act of making and manipulating things with your hands has been scientifically shown to produce more efficient, more creative, and more insightful solutions to problems. Physical feedback from our physical environment benefits our creative performance.
    Making models allows me to:
    - Step away from the distractions of an all digital environment
    - Sketch in three-dimensions
    - Have a tangible product to engage with and show the client
    - Unearth new ideas. Deliberate vs. unexpected or unplanned design revelations provide insights I can't find any other way
    - Models are teaching tools of real-world physics
    - They allow for metacognition: thinking about how you're thinking about a problem.
    At its heart, architecture is about making and I hope this inspires you to go and make (great) things!
    Thanks as always for watching...cheers...

My preferred process is clay to foam core or mat board. Due to the damage to my hands, unable to do basswood, which is why wasn't allowed to get a Master's in Arch (apparently NCARB requires the ability to do basswood models). Love clay as if don't like, can cut and shape, plus can explore texture. If really don't like, smash it up and start over. Foam core close second as so easy to work with but unless you have one foot thick walls, not for 1/8 models. In regards to the whole process, hand sketch to clay, clay to computer sketch, computer sketch to rough model, more computer work, more modeling if needed, then presentation model, then final computer renderings. Models come before the elevations and sections in case there is a time crunch (tip from an architect and professor).

I try to make several block models before moving to the scaled perfect model so i know what will work and would not also models allow a certain type of engagement with the client or jury which is not possible in any sketches, plans or sections. To be able to show something which isn't just in 2D but a real thing which I can interact with is the best part of models

There's always been a fear of making models for me because of the doubt of when to actually make them. If I may ask please, Do I use them as a design process( and risk taking a lot of time on one particular concept) or do I use them as the end product/ physical representation of my final design( which is usually not possible because of the limited amount of time designers have in a project).?? Would be great if I could get a suitable answer for this question.

I guess you need to take photos to every moment of the creation , to all idea you tried and to all volumes combination. sometimes we should take from computer modeling advantages. the ability to do rendering in any moment to how it's look like in reality

When I went to college I thought I would be a designer. As it turns out, I've spent my career as an educator in an alternative learning methodology focused on deep learning. What you've said about metacognition is beautiful and you couldn't be more on point. You used the word "insightful"... and I love that. My teaching practice is actually called Insight Mentorship. I just wanted you to know how much this resonated with me. You are certainly a teacher of attention and meaningful engagement Thank you for your channel. I have students at Pratt, Cal Arts and SCAD.

Love this video! I might as well have been sitting in Taliesin West taking a class. The video composition and production was perfect. Seeing you move things around like that was the first time traditional physical model building has made sense to me, but is the time usually available (paid for)? What about 3D printing them?...which I suppose would mean a switch to Revit modeling ideally? Cheers!

What about 3d printing? It is quite clear that traditional physical models are going to have the tendency to push your style in the direction of what is easier to do with them.

3D printing is quite powerful, especially if you combine it with other processes like CnC milling of foam and such for landscapes. I will say, from experince, 3D printing is a slow process and does require a whole new set of skills... from running the actual printer to creating models that actually print correctly with the amount of detail you want to see. It is very easy to get fast massing models out of a 3D printer, but a detailed house/building could literally take days of print time... and usually need to be redone if the project changes. There are also limitation to what the printer can physically do, overhang and cantilevers are quire difficult. That being said I love 3D printing and have been spending a lot of time trying to get the process to work with the residential projects we do and clients love to see the finished model.

so here's the thing, as an arch student i find model making really tedious. and although the end product has always been very rewarding, i was prone to looking at it as something that needs to be done rather than a sort of meta extension of the creative process. thanks for this video, i think ill be more sensitive and indulgent to the process now, and that can only benefit me and my work!

It is very important to model since it puts a vision in perspective, however physical modeling is very limiting, good for very basic conceptual forms, but personally im better off of what i can invision before i take it to sketchup, wich is such a wonderfull tool without physical limitations. Physical models are a chore, and most proffesors are so used to and convinced of it as a necessary part of the workflow.. Since i found sketchup viewer for mobile devices i can present models in full 3d on my tablet..

I'm not an architect, but as a scenic artist for theatre I build and sculpt and make every day with my hands, so I know exactly where you are coming from. A 3D rendering on a screen can never replace the tactile physicality of a model in your hand. I like how include sweeping the floor as part of your work ethic. I just spent the morning sweeping and cleaning my studio rounding off a long period building a rather large version of a designers model ! You inspire!

My teacher used to say take a look from a distance when we design the "athapookalam", a traditional festival ritual where we make a design on the floor with flowers. Any way that taking a look from a distance had an impact on the overall beauty of the design. One thing with digital models is that they are always stays within the screen, no matter how far from we look they seem inside the box. Making models can help to have same impact we felt during our pookalam design days...

I still wear a huge scar on my thumb from where the knife kept running past the balsa and into the side of it LOL ... I was terrified I would drop blood on the model!! Getting OFF the computer is the biggest recommendation I can make to any student or designer. Working with your hands on the drawing board, or in model form, helps remind you your putting together spaces, volumes, materials and light, to create a building and experience. In a computer, you can get so focussed on the lines, it detaches you from what they mean and represent. Beautiful video - and the model looks like a gorgeous project too. Thanks for sharing Eric :)

It depedens on what are you looking for. Sometimes having studied in a rename school allows you to reach a little bit easier to some job. In others you can accede to others schools in other state or country as an exchange studient in important schools. But at the end of the day what it really matters is what you can do and how resolutive you can be in a work, and the way to prove that it´s the same for everyone no matter if you came from a rename school or not. Be the best you can do for you

I really appreciated the commentary on this video—it made it interesting for me even after years of making physical models. Honestly I've never seen anyone use a glue gun, always white glue or CA glue. Does it speed up your process? Do you find it messy? Thanks for sharing Eric!

thanks matt...great hearing from you... glue guns can be messy, but quick for sure. there's some tricks you can use to limit the mess...for example, after gluing i'm always quickly tuning up the joint with a wipe of the finger and a quick swing of the hot tip on the gun, this cuts the spindly threads...this works for me, but i've seen some abominations made with hot glue so clearly there's some finesse to it...nothing that can't be learned with experience. white glue is my favorite for museum bd for sure...

One thing you don't mention, but which stands out in the video, is that a physical model gives you some feedback of how light will play on and with the forms of the design. Someday we will have immersive VR with real-time photorealistic rendering that accurately depicts multiple bounces of light. But until then, a model is the best way to examine (and discover) how the design works with light. Le Corbusier wrote (originally in French, of course), "Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light. Our eyes are made to see forms in light; light and shade reveal these forms..." Wether or not you like his work, his statement applies to everything from the most simple hut, to the Parthenon to one of Tadao Ando's masterpieces. Build your model, and take a few moments to hold it up in the sunlight by the window, or wave your desk lamp around. Look at how walls bounce light onto each other. Look at how light comes in through the openings and fills the interiors.

That's exactly what I did in my intro video to one of my models. The way the light went across the model and showed all the cool and different spaces was amazing to watch. Who knows, maybe you can develop that VR for the architecture community.

What do you think about VR? I think it is alot better way to experience something you build on the pc. The Problem with modellmaking in my opinion is, that it always takes very Long, expecially if you want many alternatives

VR to me takes far longer b/c the expectation is that it's going to mimic reality and the tools we have right now just aren't up to it yet...i think models are more forgiving in this respect...people expect models to be loose and interpretive not fixed and perfect like a digital VR space...

Hi Eric Thank you for your videos. I really enjoy them and they are truly educational! I am in my first year of studying architecture (although I've worked as an architectural technologist for 4 years prior). We have so many models to build for projects so I wanted to ask: could you possibly create a video or series of videos on how to bring in texture and context into models? As in what can be used to simulate timber, stone, zinc, masonry, concrete etc... I have a project due soon where I have to submit an adobe hut for a site here in South Africa, but I have no idea how to simulate the texture on the model and clay won’t do because it makes the model heavy and the clay we use tends to crack. Would appreciate it! Keep up the great videos!

Awesome vid. in my future biz, when I draw a design in SketchUp it may look good on screen but then when I cut it out, I often find myself tweeking the the design as the proportions look different in real life. Doesn't cost me much to create a new table leg with a different taper but I bet it would cost a ton to change a building mid streem.

30X40 Design Workshop not yet, I am working towards videos that talk more about my design process than just a build video. Their are lot of "build' videos out their so my hope is I can offer something different than what the masses of makers are doing. .......I don't produce too many videos this time of year as I'm doing that trade of time for $ and my commission eat up all my time.

appreciate your perspective as a maker brian...and you're correct, it's difficult to make changes once the foundation has been poured...which is usually step one! i think it's fascinating that you're doing mock-ups for your pieces in sketchup first...do you have any process vids on this?

Great video 30x40! Digital tools are useful for iterative prototyping, but you can't beat holding a model in your hand !

Thanks for the video Eric. Given that you think building things hands on is so important, which I agreed with, what are your thoughts on architecture students often having little experience with actual construction? Do you think every student should have a semester or year when they actually go through the process of building an entire house or other structure hands on?

this is one of the most valuable lessons you could ever learn as a student, so yes...if you have the chance to participate in the building trades and see things from the contracting side it's invaluable. humbling too i might add...speaking from experience.

The cleaning up after make models is no fun. No one teaches how to make a model in Architectural school I had to learn that on my own. But you are right it helps with building a better understanding Of space, form and Materials also building construction .

You're hardly taught anything in architecture school, you almost entirely teach yourself. And what you do learn there is 90% irrelevant in practice.

I agree, you can figure out mistakes you might have made spatially through a physical model. Gives great sense of scale also its extremely fun :3
