Modelling is an indispensable design tool in both the conception and presentation stages of an architecture project, and as such Wilmotte & Associés SA has had its own model workshop since 2008. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, the workshop models the majority of the agency's architectural, city planning, and industrial product designs, most often in wood and Plexiglas, and sometimes in metal. A true work of craft, the model can be considered a “mini building site”, built to various scales according to the architect's plans. The models provide the most faithful representation of a design in three dimensions and make it possible to comprehend the true scale and dimensions of a project. Modelling is a quick and effective method of reacting to any issues that crop up. The model plays an essential role in communicating a project's true value to the client.
