White Architecture Model

White architectural models illustrate proposed designs to emphasize design concepts or building structures instead of building material and external finish. It is commonly used as a concept model to reveal designers’ ideas. Also, it is a great starting point for architects to develop and explore better designs and options.

In the fields of urban planning, white building models serve widely as a design tool for urban insertion and development.Sometimes the client requires an architectural model that can be constructed concurrently with the design.

White architectural models are a useful way to test present design ideas, especially before making final decisions on the color and textures of external materials.

Generally, the white architectural model has very limited entourage elements. This is because designers want the viewers to pay more attention to the design itself, rather than other insignificant details.

3D printing is the most commonly used technique to build a model because it saves time and costs less. Materials like PVC and acrylic are both ideal for model making as they are cheap and easy to work with. Overall, clean and straightforward are two appropriate words that can describe the white architectural model.

It shows the overall building structure and provides a clear illustration of the architectural design concept from the planners.

This white monochrome model consists of four stories above ground and one basement. There are both the building's external framework and internal structure such as stairs and ramps.

What makes this model convenient and outstanding is that each floor of this white architectural model is removable. It allows the viewers to see the floor plan of each level.

RJ Models selected 1:50 scale for this white architectural model. Because this scale can show a great level of details, and the model would be easy to transport.

Jeddah Metro Station White Architecture Model by Foster + Partners

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

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

As shown in the model, the main content of this comprehensive plan is the underground part. It 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 up-ground roads, architecture model makers in Saudi Arabia use mirrors, which less distracting and adds fun to the 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

KPF is one of the world-leading architectural design companies and a regular customer of RJ Models. Under the request of KPF, RJ made a white architecture model 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 model is the most appropriate form for display, appropriately omitting irrelevant information.

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 subsequent design, designers can sketch designs based on this model, reflecting their design concepts more directly to the client.

K11 Haikou White Architecture Model by RTKL

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

The K11 shopping mall is one of the important projects of Haikou’s consumption transformation and upgrading. RTKL handls the design of the mall and delegates RJ Models to make a white architectural model for it.

Considering that the current design is at a preliminary concept stage, future adjustments are inevitable after consultation with RTKL principals. The present form is set as a white architectural model for future reference and modification.

This white building model uses polyvinyl chloride materials for the most part, including the tensional skeleton at the main entrance.

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

The windows are displayed with transparent acrylic panels. 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

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 with neat edges.

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 facade detail without showing 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 commissions RJ to create a white architectural model.

In addition to the wall, the façade is full of rhythmic iron grilles. To avoid monotonously, the designer fine-tuned the position of each bracket, which 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. After the weaving of whole structure, they spray it with white material to guarantee the consistency of the architectural model.
