Pretending to Be…


“Look Mom, No Lights!”: Final

Here are the final Models and Drawings for the meeting/meditation space I wrote about before. The model is at 1/4″ scale and is made mainly with different color matte board, foam core for wall thickness, and pre-cut basswood for trimmings. Also I used a little bit of fake grass for the path and acetate for windows. The site is extremely minimalistic, made with cardboard and wooden dowels for trees. This post will be image heavy, so those of you with slow internet connections, you know the deal…

how do you assemble it? special glue?
how do you make it into an actual looking building? do you color some of the materials one color and another one, another color? etccc.

I use elmers glue, nothing special, lol

I used a combination of grey poster board, pre-cut balsa wood, black matte board, corrugated cardboard, chip board and foam core…

model making is just sitting there with a ruler, triangle, glue, and knife and just piecing it together… and lots of coffee, lol
