Why do we still need physical models to design and carry out architectural projects in the digital age, despite the possibilities of rendering and simulating buildings and connected spaces?more
Isle of Models sets out in search of answers to this question based on the central role of model making in the School of architecture at EPFL Lausanne. From façade sections, spatial studies and structural models to studies of form, the contributing authors analyse the nature and relevance of the model in architectural design. The history of the model, its use in historical architectural production is also discussed in this framework.
