Model Behaviour: dynamic tools for design

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic Lecture/ Debate/Seminar


Models are a designer’s currency. They are so common in the exchange and development of ideas that we rarely question their presence or use. Architectural practice and its history are paralleled by a history of models, as varied in form as the buildings and ideas that they represent. Far from being static objects, architectural models are dynamic tools for design projects. In this talk, Professor Nick Dunn will discuss the history of the architectural model, the changing fortunes of it within the design process over time and explain why the importance and relevance of modelmaking practices are more essential to the design process in the 21st century than ever before.
