Precision was key particularly in model-making. In order to create a successful, flush, attractive and accurate model, precision was of paramount importance. In fact- I find the model’s main appeal is how accurately it can imitate life. In architecture, models are used to foresee what a space is to become. When models are no longer precise, they lose their charm. They are no longer intriguing because they cease to give an insight into what a space could be.
I very much enjoyed model making, because there were so many aspects to it. Not only was it a matter of extreme precision and observation, but breaking down ideas of space creatively and altering space in a way that was visually effective was very enjoyable. I found the balance between visual composition and extreme precision of observation and execution to be both demanding and rewarding.
