An Architectural Model-making workshop was organized for the First Year students of NCA on the 8th and 9th of December 2015.
The resource person was Prof. Kannan – a professional artist and model-maker – with over 20 years of experience in the field of art and architectural model-making.
Students were exposed to the intricacies of model-making over an entire day. Prof. Kannan displayed how to cut the various elements of a building, and then arrange and fasten them together to create a structure.
He demonstrated the process of preparing the base for the site, and creating the landscape elements like lawns, shrubs and trees, together with the pathways and water-bodies.Students then set out to create their own individual models. Retaining the same site dimensions, each one of them designed unique buildings with landscape features to match.Overall the two day workshop was a stimulating experience – a respite from the class routine.
