USE OF METAL ETCHING FOR ARCHITECTURAL MODELS

 

Model Making Workshop - Use of Metal Etching for Architectural Models

DATE:

Saturday 30th March 9:30am - 1:30pm

DETAILS:

1-Day Model Making Workshop - Use of Metal Etching for Architecture Models.

Atelier La Juntana and 4D Modelshop are organizing a 1 day hands-on model making workshop that aims to explore the potential of metal etching for architectural models.

Participants will explore the role that building facades, particularly architectural skins, play on defining the identity of the city.

Each participant will create an architecture skin through a geometrical pattern of their own design which will be drawn onto a transparent acetate and then transfer onto a brass metal plate through the process of cyanotype and photo etching. The process recreates the materiality of perforated metal, a cutting-edge material widely use in modern architecture.

A lecture on the use of metal etching for architecture and model making will complement the workshop.

All practical materials and work developed during the course, access to tea and coffee and attendance certificate are including in the booking fee.

Before the beginning of the course a tour of the 4D modelshop facilities will be organize, including their in-house leading etching laboratory. Each participant will also receive a 15% off any purchases made in the 4D shop on the day.
