Models in Architecture – design through physical & digital models

Martijn Stellingwerff, DelftX

Learn to develop your architectural designs by using scale models as well as Virtual Reality representations.

Physical and digital design skills are key to practitioners in art, design, and engineering, as well as many other creative professions. Models are essential in architecture. In design practice all kinds of physical scale models and digital models are used side by side.

In this architecture course, you will gain experience that will help and inspire you to advance in your personal and professional development. You will attain skills in a practical way. First, we will focus on sketch models for the early stages of a design process, then we will continue with virtual representations for design communication and finally more precise and detailed models will be used for further development of the ideas.

In the theoretical part of the course, you will learn about many different sorts of models: how architects use these and how they are essential in the design process.

The practical part of the course addresses a number of challenges. In small steps we will guide you through technical and creative difficulties in exciting, playful, and pleasant ways.

This is a self-paced course. This means that you can freely plan when and how fast you would like to do the course challenges: within the period of the course duration, you can decide when you are really ready to submit your course portfolio for an online peer review.

The course team also offers the self-paced MOOC IMAGE | ABILITY and both courses come with a unique magazine called ‘MIAMIAM’ (Monthly Image Ability & Models in Architecture Magazine). This magazine will present the course feedback and it will report on notable results and insights from both MOOCs and related TU-Delft campus education.
With both courses, we invite you to take new steps to explore your own creativity. The forum discussions, the possibilities to share and see each other’s work and the feedback in the magazine make it easier to work towards a course certificate.
Both courses are a good preparation for further creative studies and could guide you in a career change towards creative industries.
