The Architecture of Full-Scale Mock-Ups : From Representation to Reality, Paperback / softback Book

The Architecture of Full-Scale Mock-Ups : From Representation to Reality Paperback / softback


The Architecture of Full-Scale Mock-Ups looks at the theory and contemporary practice of creating full-scale architectural mock-ups.

This book serves as an introduction to the various forms of full-scale mock-ups which occur today.

To broaden the definition of mock-ups, Nick Gelpi dives deep into the use of mock-ups in seven high-profile and global contemporary case studies.

Instead of the presentation drawings and final building photos, the documentation of case studies relies on process photos, interviews, and moments of tension in the execution of each building.

With never-before-published content, case studies include buildings from all over the world, including the Quincho Tia Coral and Teleton Building, Copper House II, the Perez Art Museum Miami, the Cite de l'Ocean et du Surf Museum, and more.

Investigating unique case studies to answer how and when full-scale mock-ups occur today, this book is ideal for professionals and students of architecture studying materials and representation, design-build, and professional practice.
