Architectural Model Making by Nick Dunn.
This is the second edition, revised with help from Jim Backhouse & Scott Miller (winner of the Foster + Partners 'Best Architectural Model' at New Blades 2011) from SEED Architecture B.15 Workshop at the Manchester School of Architecture.
It focuses on the inspiring possibilities for modelling the built environment with all the different media and techniques available. In describing the use of different models in different contexts, this book provides a practical guide to how and why models are used, and what they are used for.
Nick Dunn is Professor of Urban Design at Lancaster University. His primary research interests are in the fields of visualization, modeling, mapping, representation in architecture, infrastructure, and urbanism. He is also the author of Digital Fabrication in Architecture (Laurence King 2012).
