There’s a transparent sense of achievement when model making turns structural. The minimal concrete structure of The Community Living Room has really been pushed by retaining a working model of integrity. A significant portion of the models weight is transferred through a series of columns on the out-of-ground section of the building. Put simply, if it doesn’t work in the model, it’s not going to work in a practical build too. It’s been really interesting to see how the little bits and pieces are working together to make something that has been development conceptually into a real, tangible form.
