Architectural models - representation of a structure built to study aspects of an architectural design or to communicate design ideas. Tangible. Human.

In the model workshop we provide architects with a place where they can play with shapes and ideas, where they can visualise the relationship between old and gain a better understanding of square meterage.

Models are a sort of cherry on the cake. We make the models like jewels, a crown to convince clients that we have the best plan. Although renders and panels give a good idea of what we have designed, a model puts everything into perspective.

Models can also be made to communicate a feeling and an atmosphere. For example if the plan is in a residential area, we use soft and warm colors. If it is a high-rise office building in a business district, the model takes on cooler tones.

The model workshop has existed just as long as Mecanoo has. We have developed a distinct style over the years, with many changes in terms of material and model-building techniques. With a well-equipped workshop we are able to combine these new trends and methods while staying true to our style.
