The role of sand table model in architecture


The sand table model is one of the most commonly used tools in architecture. Since the sand table is only used in the design field, there are relatively few other fields, so many people do not understand this. Its biggest feature is that it can combine the image with the specific, because There are many things that have a certain representation, so in the operation process, many things are practical exercises.

Due to this characteristic, the sand table model also has some related functions during use, especially in the design process of building construction, because the design of building construction is very important, this is the most important thing we should do before construction, In this process, we will find the sand table is very important for building construction.


Main functions of building sand table model

  1 、 Improving the design concept: Model making is a process of further improving and optimizing the design. The designer hand-made sand table model is an experience from two-dimensional plane to three-dimensional image. Through personal experience and participation in production, you can Further stimulate the designer's inspiration, find out the problems in the design, improve and optimize the design plan, and reach the ideal state.

  2, construction guidance: the construction unit is not easy to understand or misunderstand the plan and elevation drawings, which causes construction difficulties and ultimately affects the realization of the design effect. The use of solid models to show the design characteristics is conducive to construction companies to carry out construction according to the design intent. The intuitive and vivid sand table model has a good guiding role in project construction.

  3 Expression of design effect: The sand table is a good way to show the design characteristics to the audience and is an important means of communication between the designer and the owner.

  4 、 Reducing design risk: The sand table model is one of the important links in the design, which can minimize the design risk and has practical significance for grasping the design positioning and construction production.
