Miniature Architectural Wonders
“It is a sense of ingenuity that attracts me to modelmaking, never quite knowing what I will be asked to make next, or how I will make it.
There is always an element of design where I can use the knowledge I have built up over the course of my career. My work is not merely about miniature replication, it goes to the heart of understanding buildings, their structure and their layout.”
Ben founded Ben Taggart Modelmaking & Design in 1994 producing architectural models for private clients, property developers, museums and architects.
