Cardboard Model

This exquisitely crafted model by Eric Wallner has pride of place in my office.  Made from balsa and cardboard, it reflects the natural materials of the design.  At 1/4" inch scale, it's big enough to understand shapes & forms, while also portable and show-off-able. 

The design is "Concept House A", a 952 square foot passive-solar, super-insulated home in the Prairie-slash-modern style.  When built of regional materials, it will be a true expression of our time and our place in the Driftless Region.

A foam core or cardboard model is a great way to visualize a building project.  Whether for a new home or addition, the three dimensional nature of a model can help resolve concerns about massing and scale.  Models are especially helpful in depicting complicated roofs.
