Model Making for Architecture by Matt Driscoll
This book explains the role of the model within the architectural & planning process.
Model making is a beautiful and skilful craft, and architectural model making is a vital part of the building process. The architectural model is often the first time that a building is visualized in 3D. It can capture the excitement of the architect's vision but can also reveal unforeseen difficulties.
