Model making is used as a rapid prototyping process to hand make or fabricate a representation of the final product, often as a scaled down version. An architectural model is a tangible representation of a structure (typically a scale model) built to communicate design ideas to clients, owners, committees, customers, and the general public. Model making is also used for purposes other than architectural work such as product prototyping.

Common materials used for these models include card stock, balsa wood, basswood, other woods, plastic and pour moulded components. A number of companies produce ready-made pieces for structural components (e.g. girders, beams), siding, furniture, figures (people), vehicles and other features which are found in the models.

Architectural models are most commonly constructed at much smaller scale than their 1:1 counterpart. Sometimes model railroad scales such as 1:160 and 1:87 are used due to ready availability of commercial figures, vehicles and trees in those scales, and models of large buildings are most often built in approximately that range of scales due to size considerations. House models may be built at a larger scale such as 1:50.

Architects often employ a professional model maker to create such models.
