The Academy has set up an Architectural Modelling Laboratory equipped with the proper machines and tools to assist students in their model making. The master luthier holds optional courses for the students. He teaches the different techniques for creating maquettes of different objects and in various scales, the use of different types of materials and the handling of working tools. The Laboratory collaborates especially with the design ateliers. A Lasercutter is available in the Laboratory to combine the world of virtual models with its physical production.
