The John Knox House on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile is a well-known tourist attraction, described by one architectural historian as ‘improbably picturesque’.

In the beginning of the semester, the models were frequently abstract and crude. They often could have been mistaken as the work of a five-year-old. As the semester progressed and I learned more about my design solution, the quality of the models started to evolve. After all design decisions were finalized, the very last step of the semester always involved building a museum-quality architecture model of my building…
