Every designer has his own personal style, but there are fundamental similarities in the way that most mainstream architectural models are executed. Your House by Olafur Eliasson, however, is an example of a sectional model that is anything but textbook.

The hardcover-bound template actually represents its creator's own home in Copenhagen, with each page of paper representing 2.2 centimeters of the domicile's true dimensions. The first sheet maps out the windows of the facade while leafing through several more brings the reader into the inner rooms of the dwelling.

Only the interior chambers have been hollowed out using laser-cutting technology to arrive at a variant pop-up book designed by Michael Heimann and Claudia Baulesch. Your House by Olafur Eliasson is a visuospatial essay on a single piece of architecture, commissioned by the MoMA Library Council.
