Model Making is an introduction to the craft for students of architecture; landscape architecture; urban, interior, and theatrical design; or anyone who has the need or desire to make the large small. In concise instructions and nearly 200 charming, easy-to-follow drawings the book details the construction of both study and presentation models in common materials such as paper, chipboard, illustration board, foamcore, and balsa. It also covers topics such as choosing the right materials for the job, rendering contoured sites, and fashioning entourage.
