Model Making: The Medical Research Centre

I have started to piece together the rest of the model sections with a simple wall structure for the corridor and main reception area. There will also be a lift and corridor joining the two areas and another separate section behind the main reception that joins onto the arena. That section will be worked on once I have some more detail in the arena and reception area. I just wanted to get an idea of the sizes and layout in case anything needed to be altered. I always like to work with a model for that reason.

This stage of the model has been based on the rough plan drawings that I drew up in my sketchbook. Next I will add some detail.

Another great reason for working with a model and experimenting is that you come up with new ideas for architecture. I had a play with cutting card into curves and decided that it would work well as wall features such as a futuristic flying buttresses.
