The tinymodels method is a method that sparks creativity and reveals hidden potential in unexpected hands-on modelling. tinymodels are small physical models made of clay, wire, cardboard, paper and fabric. They are inspired by shapes, components or mechanisms of ordinary, natural and anonymous objects. The models are the beginning of an idea - a spark. What exactly a tinymodel represents is open to individual interpretation. The collection of models, the interpreted tinymodels as well as the future development of the method will be documented and published as an ongoing book series.
