3 The development of the design is reflected in this cardboard model, which has been assembled with greater accuracy and more attention to detail so that specific elements can be explored and the geometry refined further. 38 Media Left The different-coloured cardboard used in this model for the Linked Hybrid mixed-use development in Beijing by Steven Holl Architects enables the buildings to be ‘read’ as distinct from the landscape design, whilst still maintaining a coherency between the blocks.

This approach is often applied in models to enable the viewer simply and effectively to identify the new design elements within the extant conditions. Opposite The use of wood in this model enables the designer to emphasize the difference between the solid elements of the building, with its seemingly carved spaces, and the delicate glazed voids above. 46 Media Left For this site model, the ‘raw’ state of the wood used for the site is left untreated and contrasting coloured wooden blocks are used to represent the building proposal.

Any material that is inexpensive or available for free is very practical for use in models. Primarily produced for packaging, corrugated cardboard can be ‘recycled’ for architectural models and has several advantages: it is easy to cut; it has a structural core, allowing it to retain both shape and rigidity; its relative thickness compared to cardboard make it useful for building up quick ground layers in site models; and its textured core affords use as yet another compositional element. tip cutting safely Always remember to use a cutting mat when working with sheets of paper and cardboard; this will prevent damage to both furniture and to you, as it will minimize slippage when cutting out components.
