Fox News featured Ed Wood and Leszek Stefanski of Radii Inc. last night, giving viewers a behind the scenes glance at a craft little known outside of architectural circles. Wood explained the relevance of architectural models in the face of advances in computer animation. He noted that there is, perhaps, a kind of dishonesty to the flat screen. “The physical model allows freedom,” he said. It was a sound bite that no doubt gelled with Fox producers, who promptly posted the video to their “Rise of Freedom” website under the subtitle “Designing Freedom.”

  1. Holcim Awards says:

    Architectural models are an important part of the design process. They help clients and the public understand the project better. I think the only issue is that often these models are built after most of the designing is done. Models should be integrated into the design process and these study models should also be shown more often…depicting the evolution of the design.
