Before making the final model of a design, we make what is called a study model. The purpose of study models is to try ideas out before finalizing the design to see how certain things will look and how everything will come together. Study models are made from cheaper materials such as paper or chipboard and don ‘t have to be absolutely perfect. This weekend, I made a study model of my funerary monument for Shel Silverstein. The nice thing about building it is now I know how it all comes together and what to do differently next time to make it better.

Hi! I'm Katie. I am a junior here at Lehigh and I am double majoring in Civil Engineering and Architecture. This Arts-Engineering program is a five year program where I will graduate with two degrees. I am from Quakertown, Pennsylvania, and I am one of the few commuting students at Lehigh. Despite of this, I am the Vice President of the Steel Bridge Team, and I played club rugby. Additionally, I do kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at a local martial arts gym. If you have any questions about anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask! View all posts by lukatie15
