ma·quette: A usually small model of an intended work, such as a sculpture or piece of architecture.
My friend and I recently made a maquette inspired by the work of J.H. Crawford. (sorry I can't post the website yet. Somehow my account and username aren't working)
The maquette has helped in our endeavors to visualize better solutions to many areas of our city. All of this is theoretical work for us but after a while we wanted to draw and write up ideas that the city we live in doesn't consider. The usual practice for us is to read and criticize.
I wanted to share this wonderful tool with fellow Citizen Planners.
