The Making of: A Sectional Model

Today I am excited to share the step-by-step process of making a sectional architectural model. This model was a partner project between myself and my friend Parvathy Nair. The building design is for an urban middle school located in downtown Chicago. If you're not familiar with a sectional mode, it is as if you were taking a cut of a large portion of the building you have designed. Often it is painted a bright color to communicate the cut. In our case, it is the color yellow. Please enjoy these process photos to learn more about what happens in a third year architecture studio!

I hope you enjoyed this "behind-the-scenes" look into our academic world. I'm extremely interested in any sort of processes (most architecture majors are) and I think it's important to look back and admire your own work from time to time. Thank you for reading!
