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!

P.S. Just wanted to say that I missed you all! I was super busy finishing up my final project for architecture studio (aka not sleeping) but am finally done and can now post daily, yay! Here are some shots of our work (it was a partner project). I'll also be doing a step-by-step post on the making of this model once we take some profesh photos of it next week.
