Gaudi and real-space sketching

“He always designed from three-dimensional models made from plaster, wood, wires, and counterweights, with cloth to simulate the surfaces. The model was the pricipal instrument in the development of his ideas: Drawing was also important to him, but as he said to his students, he conceived forms directly in space.”

Antoni Gaudi, From Nature to Architecture by Maria Antonietta Crippa TASCHEN 2003
