fisher house model.
For this model, I wanted to experiment with other materials as i had mainly made all my models with balsawood. For this model, I used boxboard to complete the contoured landscape. I felt the use of boxboard was easier in some ways, harder in others. For example, whe n using boxboard, I didnt need to consider the direction of the grain as i needed to with balsawood. On the other hand, I felt it was sometimes more difficult to cut through.
I used little twigs for my trees and white card for the actual house. I chose to use white card, as it both emphasises the house, and also can appear as negative space, allowing more focus to be on the site (as this is more of a site model) .
