Scale models can be an excellent compact, cost effective way of communicating a large amount of complex information in a visually stimulating and engaging way.They appeal to adults and children alike and due to their visual nature can be understood regardless of language or culture.
The process of making a model can also provide a synthesis, bringing together fragments of research and conflicting opinions.
Computer aided technologies such as cnc, laser cutting and acid etch brass are combined with more traditional skills such as sculpting and modelling by hand to provide a balanced finished product full of life, authenticity and atmosphere.
We often include people in the models to help define the scale and, by adding a rich layer of detail, we can introduce a real sense of place and habitation.
