School Architectural Model
School architectural models help to illustrate the design scheme that the architect has in mind in 3D.
Sometimes the details of a project are difficult to visualize from looking at blueprints alone.
Therefore having a to-scale school architectural model helps to facilitate discussion about the design between the architect and client to make sure the product is exactly as envisioned.
This is especially helpful when designing schools so that everyone involved in the process, from the administration, teachers, a board of trustees, and even student committees, can visually understand the design to know if the proposed concept will work for their community.

An example of a school model completed by RJ Models is that of the Horace Mann School in New York City.
This specific model has a few interesting features:
First, CNC was used to make the accessories that are featured in the model. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control and means that a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD) into numbers to ensure the most precise measurements.
Second, specialized lighting techniques were used in this model. RJ Models uses models with LED lights that can be set to varying brightness and colors using a hand-held remote to truly customize the model for the specific project.
Third, you will notice the detail of not only the buildings in the model but that of the landscaping too.
Since architecture never stands alone in a vacuum, it is important to get the sense of how the building functions in the surrounding environment as well.
RJ Models takes great pride in making sure each model is extremely specific to help better envision the final product as a whole.
Lastly, a helpful feature of this model, in particular, is that the top of the model can be removed to see the details inside of the school as well.
So not only can you see the general layout of the building from a bird’s-eye view, but it also allows for a chance to envision how the building will function internally for the staff, students, and teachers who use it on a daily basis.
- Scale: 1:500
- Size: 800mm x 600mm
- Production Time : 30 Days
Another school model that RJ Models created is of Kuwait University. This school model has a few interesting features:
For starters, the model itself is white to accurately depict the final color of the building.
RJ Models is happy to customize your model to the specific colors you have in mind so that the product is as close to the final version as possible.
Additionally, similar to the Horace Mann model, you will notice the landscaping is representative of the actual landscaping that will be utilized and coordinates with the surrounding environment.
Because of Kuwait’s very warm, desert climate, palm trees are used for landscaping at this specific school and can be seen represented on the model as well.
Finally, this school model really illustrates how unique details are incorporated into the model. From the geometric windows to the LED lighting that represents the actual lighting plans for the building, RJ Models ensures that the customizable details on your model that fit your exact specifications.
