This week I finally got some time with the laser cutter, so I could try out an idea I have for a presentation model. It consists of a series of sections, each one intersecting all the different layers of landscape. By stacking these sections after each other, you get a pretty good image of both the exterior and interior of the pavilion. This model is half the size (1:200) of the final intended version, which will be made of 5 mm perspex. A thicker material will make the model will much less transparent, something this model suffers from a lot (the card is 1 mm). The final version will not be glued together either, so that each section can be viewed on its own and pieces taken away, enabling a closer look of the caves within.

A much earlier model from when the concept of the hill was born.
