Scale models are invaluable to the architect when checking designs and establishing forms, but they also enhance the communication between the architect and those involved in the planning and construction stages. A three-dimensional model speaks a language which can be instantly understood and enables spatial relations to be perceived at a single glance. This book presents more than 200 scale models of notable 20th century houses by architects including Aalto, Asplund, Frank, Gray, Le Corbusier, Loos, Melnikov, Mies, Plecnik, Schindler, Wagner, Wright. The models show the arrangement of rooms, the light conditions and will help the reader to develop and train his ability to visualize spatial concepts.
