Interesting challenge to replicate traditional Japanese joinery at a small scale. Note that some of the larger beams are curved as well as being rounded on the top and bottom.

Wood Models

Wood models are an elegant solution to showing more detail than a study model but without the expense of a full color presentation model. They are also useful when the architect wants the client to focus on the form of the building without being distracted by colors.

Wood models can vary in the amount of detail shown. Options include simple massing models, exterior only models with opaque doors and windows represented, or the interior of the building can be shown through open windows. The interior of the building can also be made more visible with a removable roof. Smaller study type models can take 25 to 75 hours to complete. Larger more detailed models typically take more than 100 hours up to 200+ hours to complete.
