White Architectural Model

White Architecture Model

The white architectural model illustrates a proposed design which aims to emphasize on the design concept or the building structure instead of building material and external finish.

It is commonly used as a concept model to reveal designers’ ideas, and a great starting point for the architects to develop and explore better designs and options.

In the fields of urban planning, the white architectural model is extensively used as a design tool for an urban insertion and developing.

Sometimes the client requires architectural model which can be constructed concurrently with the design, and a white architectural model is a useful approach to text present design ideas, especially before final decisions have been made on colors and textures of external materials.

Generally, the white architectural model has very limited entourage elements as the designers want the viewers to pay more attention to the design itself instead of other insignificant details.

3D printing is the most commonly used techniques to build the white architectural model because it is time-effective and has a low cost, and materials like PVC and acrylic are both ideals for making models as they are cheap and easy to work with.

Overall, clean and straightforward are two appropriate words that can describe the white architectural model.

Jeddah Metro Station White Architecture Model by Foster + Partners

  • Scale: 1:200
  • Size: 600mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 10 Days

Foster + Partners has been appointed through an international competition to develop the “architectural vision” for Jeddah’s city-wide public transport plan.

“The development of the metro system will create a new urban amenity for the city of Jeddah at key locations below the elevated track”, said Foster + Partners.

As shown in the white architectural model, the main content of this comprehensive plan is the underground part, which includes four floors and extends from the design of the stations to the trains and branding.

RJ Models simplifies the buildings and landscapes above the ground, using white blocks and white scale trees to represent them; for the up-ground roads, white architecture model makers use mirrors originally, which is not too distractive but adds fun to the white model.

Through the sectional display, viewers can clearly and intuitively understand the structure and function of this underground architecture.

1776 House Architecture Model by KPF

  • Scale: 1:64
  • Size: 500mm x 200mm
  • Production Time : 10 Days

Under the request of KPF, one of the world-leading architectural design companies and a regular customer of RJ Models, a white architecture model is made for them to present their design concept.

As the design concept is the primary role of this model, facade materials and interior decoration are relatively less important, the white model is the most appropriate form for display, and the irrelevant information is properly omitted.

To maintain the consistency and integrity of the white model, most parts of the architecture are made of polyvinyl chloride, including elevators, floors, columns, beams and etc.; while the other parts are made of acrylic, such as the French windows.

In the subsequent design process, designers can use this model as the basis to sketch and design, and more directly reflect their design concept to their clients.

K11 Haikou White Architecture Model by RTKL

  • Scale: 1:100
  • Size: 500mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

Considering the current design is still in the preliminary concept stage which will have inevitably adjustments in the future and after consultation with the responsible personnel of RTKL, the present form is set as a white architectural model, for the convenience of reference and modification in the future.

Polyvinyl chloride materials are used for most of this white architectural model, including the tensional skeleton at the main entrance.

Meanwhile, the white scale people and coconut trees are also made of white materials to match the entire model.

Transparent acrylic plates are used to present the windows; however, there are curvilinear elements in the design of the atrium, it is a challenge for white architectural model makers to install those plates on curved surfaces.

Office Building White Model in Shanghai by SOM

  • Scale: 1:500
  • Size: 450mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

The building facade has two sets of grid systems, one is rectangular, and the other is diamond-shaped; to precisely present the design, CNC carving machine is used, which can laser cutting various materials and keep the edges very neat.

Retail White Model for Prada

  • Scale: 1:200
  • Size: 450mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 days

This is a white architectural model of a mall store.

Unlike previous white models, it has a relatively small size and requires more detail of the facade without the need to display internal structures.

In the past, this client often commissioned RJ Models to make a large-scale architectural or urban planning model; this time, considering the special design of the mall’s facade, the client deliberately commissions RJ to create a white architectural model for it.

In addition to the wall, the façade is full of rhythmic iron grilles; in order to avoid monotonously, the designers make minor adjustments to the position of each bracket and presents a different horizontal rhythm from the whole.

To accurately present this unique design, the white architectural model makers use the iron wire to restore it, and after the weaving of whole structure, they spray it with white material to guarantee the consistency of the white architectural model.

  • Scale: 1:10
  • Size: 2000mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

This white architectural model is part of a road and Foster + Partner designers will use it to do further research.

The arched passages and the lattice-shaped tops become the original geometric elements after removing the spectacular arrangement, which has the perfect geometry and proportions as ancient Greek architecture.

In this white architectural model, the white model makers use a single piece of thick PVC block for cutting and engraving, supplemented by two transparent acrylic columns for support.

The coherence of its vaults and grid ceilings are maintained and even if viewers only look at this small part, can still feel the subtlety of the design.

Roof Structure of Hong Kong Airport T2 White Architectural Model

  • Scale: 1:10
  • Size: 2000mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

Hong Kong Airport T2 has a relatively complex roof structure.

The top of the white architectural airport model is made up of a combination of multiple spatial surfaces and each surface is controlled by a spatial curve, and the overall shape is smooth and coherent.

To elaborately and subtly demonstrate the design, the scale is defined as 1:10.

At the same time, the structure of the roof, steel structure, and ceiling are very complicated which need a very large amount of spatial positioning and shape finding work.

Therefore, before the white architectural model making process, white model makers carefully study the design drawings and keep every tiny detail in mind.

The final white model is full of rigorous aesthetics, which is greatly appreciated by clients and leaves a great impression on each viewer.

In the second floor of the theater and under the eaves of the first floor, white model makers install two different white lights to enrich the space and create a beautiful arc shape.

The designer uses transversely-arranged curved cylinders to weave an upwardly constricted conical shape ceiling, which not only meet the acoustic design requirements but also decorate the whole space.

The white model makers restore the design with hundreds of PVC thin columns and carefully design the position of each groove so that the columns could be accurately pinned.

Section White Architectural Model

  • Scale: 1:100
  • Size: 500mm x 200mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

Providing reference and inspiration for designers is increasingly becoming one of the key features of a white architectural model, and more and more designers are accustomed to customizing model which adapts to different stages of the design.

The white architectural model has become a preference for many designers due to its relatively low cost, short production cycle and less tedious information.

Designers can refer to the white model for more creative designs based on the partially determined model.

In the case that the appearance remains basically, the white model makers make this model from the sectional perspective, which is more conducive for designers to do the overall consideration of structure and function and subsequent design.

In this white model, very low saturation green is used for the scale trees to maintain the integrity of the model.

City Planning White Architectural Model

  • Scale: 1:1000
  • Size: 2000mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

This white planning model is for Xujiahui district which is one of the four sub-centers of Shanghai.

After a close discussion, the client and RJ Models commonly decide to use a white architectural to present the planning.

On the one hand, the production cycle of the white model is shorter; on the other hand, it avoids unnecessary interference, so that the viewer can better focus on the planning itself.

The white model makers only use PVC board to outline the shape of each building without any additional craftsmanship, but the smooth curve of the perfect cut hint the noble of the model.

Since it is a regional planning model, the model makers carry out a certain portrayal of the surrounding scenery, including roads and street trees; but unlike the usual “addition” production principle (that is, the addition of materials for characterization), RJ Models uses the “subtraction” principle to express the road by engraving on an existing white pedestal which is both subtle and low-key.

Transparent plexiglass is used to represent the wall, dividing the space without obstructing the smoothness of sight.

In the section view, the viewers can clearly see the structural system and spatial distribution of the building.

A key feature of this building is the support structure with twisted steel, and the white model makers use 3D printing to accurately restore the rotation angle and integrated manufacture it.

The white model makers focus on the opera center and three-dimensional greening.

In the theater, in addition to the rows of seats and scale people, the interior design is also illustrated; the crystal lamps hanging from the ceiling, the bamboo-like walls, and the pale-yellow lighting all show the fineness and delicacy of the model.

Model makers also add some green landscapes in the white architectural model to echo the vertical green design concept.

Kuwait Metro Station Section White Architectural Model by SOM

  • Scale: 1:200
  • Size: 2000mm x 300mm

  • Size: 2000mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

This white architectural model is for a commercial complex with a continuous undulating roof.

The continuous undulating roof is one of the design highlights, and there are hundreds of neatly arranged illuminators in the same direction above the grid layer.

In order to accurately restore this design, the white model makers use 3D technology to print the grid layer according to the three-dimensional drawings; then manually install numerous different angles visors one by one.

In this section white model, not only the above-ground store parts are displayed, but also the parking lot and column net underneath are clearly displayed to the viewers.

In the atrium of the building, a layered viewing platform is designed, and the model makers use the transparent acrylic sheets to accurately restore the designers’ concept.

The exterior of the building is carefully designed and like a giant crystal column, which is embellished with the dynamic shape of water droplets; as the viewers change their positions, a variety of lights are reflected.

However, taking the deadline and final effects into account, KPF and RJ Models unanimously decide to use the white architectural model to display the architecture, which is a challenge for the model makers.

How to use only one type of material and its shading, detail, and cutting to show the designer’s sophisticated design is not an easy task.

White model makers fulfill the production task in a very limited time after days of restless hard work.

White architectural model makers not only fully utilize the leisure space on the roof, deliberately arrange green lawns and simulated umbrellas, but also carefully make the interior part and the roof is detachable, so the viewers can see the interior design sufficiently.

In addition to the fixed room layout and transportation facilities on each floor, there is no extra layout, and the position in the hall is left empty for the designers’ subsequent ideas.

On the front side of the white architectural model, in order to label some information that must be presented to the viewers, such as the name of the building, model makers engrave them on the white wall and do not destroy the integrity of the model.

Through the display of the white architectural model, the limitations in the design of the merchant can be reduced, and the store style can be designed according to the characteristics of their products.

Except for the elevator and window display position, the rest is left empty for the merchants and their imaginations can be fully utilized.

In addition, the white architectural model makers also glazed the white PVC panel for the external facade to make it more conformable to the shape of the exterior wall and use matte material inside, which is consistent with the commonly used interior design techniques.

The white model makers also meticulously omit half of the roof, which not only makes it convenient for people to overlook the entire model but also shows the shape of the main entrance of the building.

  • Size: 2000mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 12 Days

This particular design allows for an unobstructed view of the interior and the largest publicity location for the store.

The white architectural model is presented in the most basic form and leaves room for the designer to add more subtle designs in the future.

The difficulty in the white architectural model making process is how to ensure that the curvature of the glass is the same as design, while still achieving sufficient stiffness.

The final curved glass curtain wall and load-bearing column are integrally formed by 3D printing

The central building of the model is surrounded by pillars and thin acrylic sheets as if it is guarded just like treasures.

The white model makers stack the PVC plates to show the ups and downs of the terrain, instead of adding fillers, making a purer model.

Each tiny part of the white architectural model all cut by laser, which makes the whole model look nobler.

  • Size: 2000mm x 300mm
  • Production Time : 14 Days
