Before You’re Thirty: Modelmaking

Each month the Manchester Student Society of Architecture (MSSA) host a night of guest lectures on a variety of themes relating the the field of Architecture and beyond. This years November theme was modelmaking and brought together three speakers to present their varied perspectives and experiences on the subject.

Despite the varied backgrounds of the speakers there were some strong common threads in the presentations that reinforced the strong pro-making feeling throughout. At all levels modelmaking was presented as an essential tactile tool for testing, presenting and soul searching/enriching when trying to better understand built forms, both large and small.

Thank you to MSSA for their work putting the event together and to the speakers who gave their time generously. Find out more about the MSSA here. Keep up to date with the Before You’re 30 lecture series on their facebook page here.
