Shaping Space Open Call online gallery

Online Gallery

In 2021 as part of the Shaping Space - Architectural Models Revealed exhibition, the Building Centre and V&A launched an Open Call for the submission of architectural models from around the world.  

Shaping Space spotlit the essential yet under-explored role that architectural models play in shaping the spaces we live in, and we asked for submissions to focus on three questions:

  • Why do you make models?
  • How do you make models?
  • Who are models for?

We received many incredible submissions that revealed the diversity and significance of making architectural models. You can view them in the online gallery below!











Shaping Space: Architectural Models Revealed was funded by the AHRC, led by the V&A and the Building Centre.
