A Hands-on Process
I have always wanted to build an architectural model at full scale, and my thesis is giving me that opportunity. However, I didn’t anticipate how challenging fabrication would be. Materials alone have taken much planning to procure: 5 sheets of poplar plywood, 60 feet of piano hinge, 720 wood screws, 41 hitch pins, and a gallon of exterior stain so far. But the model is far underway with the impending exhibition next week!
