The Anatomy of an (Architectural) Model
BY BARTLOMIEJ K. SAPETA
@ VOL 94
ON JUL 25, 2012
Presenting design projects to the public does not warrant an opportunity to explain choices made during the production of architectural models. However, these are essential elements of the design process that have an ability to significantly enhance the quality of the presentation, especially when complex three-dimensional spatial arrangements are present, time, resources, and budgets are limited and artistic visions and values are at stake. This presentation examines an array of choices that led to a production of an architectural model on a rapid prototyping machine.

In Preparation Mode
We're not exactly sure how Twitpic user 36Point is going about preparing for his PechaKucha presentation, but it apparently involves the help of a few figures, one of which we're pretty sure is Homer Simpson. The caption for the image reads "Preparing my presentation for PechaKucha 7," which we assume is tonight's PKN in Omaha.
Modus x PechaKucha
