What to model next

Which images should I model next in paper? The criteria: clear geometry and/or recognizable space. No people. Options below, but please suggest your own. I need a total of 3-6 images that will look good as paper models!

Thank you!!

    I quite like the first one, Notre Dame du Haut. It can be easily made and render pretty good !
    Otherwise a suggestion for you that seems to meet your criteria – “Fagnano Olona Elementary School” by Aldo Rossi : https://cameronmcewan.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/rossi-a-1972-76-fagnano-elementary-school-photograph-mcewan-c-2011.jpg

    I like Notre Dame du Haut as well. I do agree with Maxime on this ! I think Bedford square is quite a good one, but more in a ‘political’ sens, being easily indentify by the jury as the everyday banal experience of the city. Im currently building the model of EUR, roma, it might be a nice one for you as well, very regular shape and easy to identify… and it has a plinth, which is cool.

    If you are doing Taj Mahal, image should be corrected vertically. You’re using one that isn’t perfectly aligned. this one is better:

    also a nervi interior would be great.

    pantheon could be spectacular:

    Inside Eisenman’s House VI – this would be a great one to speak about divide between object & inhabitation & the constructed image

    Barcelona pavilion

    2001 a space odyssey
    or this one:

    doctor’s waiting room
    (in google i actually typed doctor’s waiting room BLEAK and that’s what came up)

    inside london underground

    inside BA 747


    The obvious question would be – what are your diamonds? would there be some in that list that you could model?

      awesome thank you! LOVE these, especially Eisenman, the doctor’s office and space odyssey. My diamonds don’t really suit for this purpose I think – other than demand and Alberti’s grid, there is sleight of hand, Shakespeare’s Midnight Summer Dream, Dorian Gray and lastly labyrinth, for which maybe I could maybe find a related image.

      Anyway, I started with Baraggan’s towers, an interior of the white cube gallery, and Rossi’s Fagnano Olona Elementary School. Getting the paper factory going!
