Why do we still need physical models to design and carry out architectural projects in the digital age, despite the possibilities of rendering and simulating buildings and connected spaces? 'Isle of Models' searching for answers to this question based on the central role of model making in the architectural studios at EPFL Lausanne. The history of the model and its use in past architectural production is also discussed in this framework. The accompanying series of images illustrates the different forms and possibilities which the model can offer as part of the design process.
