Text description provided by the architects.
Over the course of three short weeks, this series of models were born including concepts, building/context, façade detail, floor layout, and patient room details.
The concept model site is built from 3D printed resin with a hand-shaped layered plywood building design.
This is followed by a larger scale building model within the overall urban context capturing the design’s presence from both above and through the narrow urban streets.
A ¼” = 1’ scale façade crafted from basswood, tinted acrylic, and a resin frame zooms in on the intricate layered details of the building skin.
The typical floor and patient room models round out the overall design expression.
Model Size: Multiple
Materials: Baltic Birch, Maple/Cherry Wood, Acrylic, Resin, High-Density Foam
