The model of a modern railroad station shown above is an example of the work being done in the architec-
tural school in the construction of scale miniatures to supplement paper plans.* The project illustrated was
built by senior students to. fit a location in Ann Arbor on the Michigan Central Railroad.

Architects Construct Toy Housest
As Supplement For Blueprints
Architects are building toy houses take unusual care to make their
these days,%according to Dean Wells! models as realistic as possible, com-
I. Bennett of the Architecture school. plete with such details as mullioned
Rather than being of the doll house windows, infinitesimal clocks and

variety, however, these toy houses or
models as they are better known, serve
as a graphic representation of the end
product of architectural conception.
Made to perfect scale with balsa
wood walls and roofs, cellophane
windows and sponge shrubbery they
are an exact reproduction, in minia-
ture of the building or house which
the architect has conceived on paper,
Formerly the model's place was tak-
en by a painstaking perspective sketch
which showed the finished project
from one angle only, a ,defect which
is overcome by the use of a propor-
tional model. As Dean Bennett point-
ed out, this fault was of little hin-
drance to the practiced architect who
is used to visualizing from a draw-
ing. To have a method of illustrating
a project in three dimensions, how-
ever, is of distinct value in training
embryonic designers, and particulr-
ly in the classroom.
In spite of the fact that students

carefully landscaped grounds, the ob-
ject of their construction, as Dean
Bennett emphasized, is in the repre-
sentation of a given project and not
in the models themselves.
While not the first school to adopt
this means of graphical representa-
tion in architectural study, Michigan
has rated among the foremost users
of the idea since its conception about
eight years ago. Among other of the
country's architecture schools using
the idea are Harvard and Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology, both
progressive in this field, according to
Dean Bennett.
One of the most recent projects was
the lay out of a modern railroad sta-
tion for Ann Arbor complete with
train sheds, baggage house, and pas-
senger ramps. The plans and models
were built to fit in with blue prints
of the railroad yards in town which
were furnished by the Michigan Cen-
tral System.
