Doll House, Diorama (VA2224.02)

Farhad Mirza

For centuries, miniature models have been used as representations of larger things or as standalone objects of wonder. In this seven week course, students will work at ‘dollhouse scale’ (1:12 or 1:24) on a personal project that would benefit from expression as a dollhouse, diorama, or maquette. Coursework will emphasize the importance of an organized and well-managed digital-workspace and students will learn methods of laying out and building physical models as studies, mock-ups or finished objects. Depending on what each project requires, students will have access to laser cutters, 3D printers, and a CNC mill to realize their miniature scenarios. At the end of seven weeks each student will present a scale model complete with scale figures.
