Abstract

Scale modelling is a discipline that covers the construction of physical models of objects, maintaining a particular scale or relative proportions. Scale models are built for many reasons. They are made by professionals, passionate collectors and amateurs who build them as a hobby. From the professional point of view, scale models are used for different purposes. Engineers use scale models to test the performance of a particular object prototype; in the film and theatre industry they are used for scenography, whereas architects use them to prove and evaluate their ideas in different stages of project development. This book is dedicated to scale modelling as a specific field of architecture.
