Model making study workshop

The model is an important design tool and helps to design, grasp and understand space. The focus is not on perfection, but on the expressiveness of the model in relation to the architectural idea. It is important to examine the diversity of the products and to use their specific characteristics appropriately for one's own statement. The aim of the work is to create objects that embody the corresponding design ideas in an aesthetic exterior.
The model-making workshop also supervises third-party funded projects such as exhibition models and competition models.
