Architectural Maquettes

Since 2014, I've been working as a model maker for an architecture firm. All models are created by hand, using power tools, rulers and exact-o knives. Models are created using a variety of different materials, including acrylic, wood, cardboard, poured resin, etc. The models can also include integrated lighting and measure anywhere from a few centimetres to 600 square feet (Port of Montreal's maquette - the last two images below).

The making of Hitman Go scale model

Below is a video and photos of a model made for the Hitman Go video game. A filmmaker was present during the creation of the model and the footage was used as a promotional video for the launch of the game on PS4. For more information on how this model was built, click here

After a weekslong search for a partner that understood the project, Square Enix Montreal teamed up with Atelier-S, a Montreal-based architecture and design firm that also builds maquettes. You can see the production process in the video above, which also includes interviews with Routon and Hitman Go creative director Daniel Lutz.
