After a period of decline, the architectural model gained new prominence when it became a popular tool for design education and practice in the early twentieth century. This revival is usually associated with the turn towards objectivity and the search for expressive means to communicate ideas in three dimensions—but how was the model transformed in the age of its mechanical reproducibility?
Modernism in Miniature explores the encounter between photography and model-making between 1920 and 1960. It focuses on model photography as a distinctive genre and suggests that the so-called “model boom” was inextricably bound up with the explosion of modern mass media.
