Within the first section of this project, I developed 10 projects for our final exhibition at the end of Stage 6. These models were large scale site models developed out of wood with laser cutting methods being employed to develop accurate topography. The main purpose of these models is to communicate the various projects instantaneously to any audience. Where have interpreted various plans to create the models, members of the public may not view architectural drawings in the same way we see them and so the model finds its place as a perfect tool for communication and prover of discussion.
Within the second section of this project, I developed large sectional model cutting through a croft, house and the café/market areas of my scheme. These three areas represent the circular economy in-which my project tries to create for the heart of the Island. The 3 areas were developed in colour to highlight materiality and draw your attention to their presence whilst the landscape remained white. The process of model making has allowed me to consider the landscape, how the crofts meet one another, how they meet the public/private space, how the croft meets the wall meets the pavement meets the road and so on. It allowed me to consider these spaces and resulted in deeper levels of consideration.
