Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Foamcore Architectural Model!

Every time Adam needs to wrap his head around the layout of a building, he makes a scale model of the structure as an exercise to better understand the space. One such building is the Fab House community maker space in Cleveland, for which Adam is on the advisory board. Using digital renders and blueprints as reference, Adam recreates the four floors of the Fab House in a 1/24 scale architectural model form using trusty foam board, a craft knife, tape, and hot glue!
