Show me you model

Step into the architecture model

Discover models from above, from below, from within and from a distance, from the budding idea, through failed and successful experiments and leading to the final solution.As a visitor you will be even a part of an architecture model. The entire exhibition space is designed as a model in the ratio 2:1.A real working model, where the architect’s hand-drawn lines and notes are evident on walls and floors.

“It takes a special work to step into a model. You have to lift the model up and put your eye right up to a window, so as to be able to enter the room there. When we look at the model, so we tread as Alice in Wonderland deep, deep into the model., we look at the light falling., we are looking at the dimensions of surfaces and distances between walls. It is only in the model that we can really find some opportunities that did not exist before we began. ” 
Karsten Gori, architect MAA, Leth & Gori.
