Shaping Space - Architectural Models Revealed exhibition curator tour for London Design Festival

Fri 24 Sep 2021, 1 - 1.30pm
Part of Shaping Space

This LDF join the curators of the Shaping Space – Architectural Models Revealed exhibition to learn about the role of architectural models in shaping the spaces we live in. Through historic and contemporary presentations of a world in miniature, the talk explores why models are made, how they are made, and who they are for.

A collaboration between the V&A and the Building Centre, Shaping Space – Architectural Models Revealed brings together a collection of diverse models to reveal the evolution of architecture from the first maquette made as a tool for thinking, to a presentation model to engage a client or community.

From the original working design model of the Royal Albert Hall to intricate film sets of puppet-maker Andy Gent, visitors are invited to learn the stories behind the models and consider how they contribute to shaping the world, and our perception of it.
