This book examines the evolution and importance of prototypes in the architectural process.
Prototyping Architecture explores the importance of prototypes in the delivery of high quality contemporary architecture - performative architecture that is inventive, purposeful and beautiful.
The book brings together the work of architects, engineers, manufacturers, product designers, research teams, and artists, sourced from around the world.
Placing a particular emphasis on research and experimentation, authors show how prototyping can inform architecture with maquettes, models and full-scale trial assemblies.
The importance of prototyping within architecture to achieve high quality construction is also examined.
