Abstract

There is a naive belief in models as a blueprint for objects and environments that goes back to the epistemology of The Enlightenment. In the manufacturing industry and in society, many decisions concerning new products or urban planning are based on models representing the actual object or area. Substantial experience is required to interpret models, especially when it comes to the effect different scales have on material, colors and volume. This paper will address theoretical aspects of our ability to interpret and understand the relationship between 3D-models on computer screens or constructions of models and the object in full scale.
