The DOMUS project is the 1:50 scale construction of an imaginary 14th century palace built with real contruction materials such as concrete, brick, stone, etc, and described by the author on its own blog.
This ebook collects the early entries of the blog, fully revised and translated to English, showing the assemby of walls, arches, vaults and other elements with step-by-step pictures and considerations about the techniques put into practice by the builder (and even the mistakes made).
It can be a useful tool for those who want to approach structural modeling, a discipline that apply real construction methods to the world of model making.
140 pages | +500 pictures | sketches, plans and full description of the construction process with sizes, material and tools used.
Warning: Not a job for lazy people!
