Architectural models can be design tools used in the process of designing a home, presentation tools used for communication, or even mementos built for display after the house's design is complete. We love them — from rough-and-tumble study models to ornate heirloom-quality keepsakes.
Here are a few we rounded up from the web:
- Circa 1930 architectural model of a traditional Detroit house, auctioned at Midwest Auction Galleries, via Anonymous Works
- A model of a prefab house designed for cold climates by Canadian firm RVTR
- A model, built by Architectural Illusions, of the Taylor House, a sprawling home and grounds.
- A model of the LUMENHAUS, Virginia Tech's winner of the Solar Decathlon Europe
- Study model of Perry Residence, a house in Kauai, Hawaii by Modative
