Models are one of the most fundamental tools of practicing — as well as educating — architects around the world. However, the advancement and proliferation of digital technology has fundamentally altered the position and role of models within architectural education and practice.
On Models is a collaboration between e-flux Architecture and MOCA within the context of its exhibition HOUSE OF CARD by Thomas Demand, featuring essays contributed by Thea Brejzek and Lawrence Wallen, Jake Chakasim, Penelope Dean, Orit Halpern, Sylvia Lavin, David Theodore, and Albena Yaneva.
