Architectural model is a unique tool that can convey and visualize a solution from concept to design in thumbnail format. The topic of visual research "The Art of Architectural Model" is directly related to the topic of the author's Graduation Thesis - Methodological Manual on Art Practice for the Profile "Environment Design". The main task of the first-year manual is to develop the spatial thinking of students and obtain practical modeling skills in various techniques. The theoretical basis of the manual includes concepts about structural and technological features of architectural model, as well as information about applicable tools and materials. The purpose of visual research is to classify architectural models and determine modeling methods when solving various three-dimensional problems. In the process of research "The Art of Architectural Model", the author systematized visual material according to three criteria: structure, technology and material. The relationship of selected criteria led to the identification of four main types of architectural model: Solid and molded, Monolithic and block, Ready-made and Complex. Visual research illustrates the individuality of the approach to the work of "architects-creators", which conveys the peculiarities of the structure and applicability of various materials in modeling. Additional blocks with selected quotes from architects reveal the fundamental approach to work and the concept of their work. The reader, using the example of the visual series presented in the research, can find new forms of expressiveness and develop his own approach in volume-spatial modeling.
