AA Archives: Architectural Models Collaborative Network

The AA Archives is proud to announce that it is a partner in a new international collaborative network, funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council. Working with the V&A, the Soane Museum, the RIBA, the Sorbonne, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and the Architekturmuseum der Technischen Universität, München, the research network sets out to bring together all those interested in the history, current practice and future of architectural model-making.

Entitled, Architectural Models in Context: Creativity, Skill and Spectacle, the intention of the project is to share knowledge, to take stock of the current state of the field, and to identify productive areas for future practice and research.
