Mandaue Site, 2014, 1:1000
Make models was commissioned to produce a travel model that served to assist the team and client in understanding the project site and its immediate context and topography. The model dimensions are designed to neatly fit within an A3 sized sheet for the purpose of portability, working in conjunction with sketches over the working table. CNC milled timber was adopted to pick up the subtle changes in the topography at the scale of 1:5000. In contrast white acrylic blocks were chosen to clearly indicate the existing building’s mass and scale. A removable semitransparent acrylic sheet was installed to articulate the project site and can be replaced for new iterations as the design develops.
