Centre for Model-making and Prototyping

The Centre is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment for working with metal, timber, plastic, and other materials. Its technological capacity supports every step of architectural and industrial model-making process, starting from a graphic sketch or 3D visualization to producing the actual prototype. The students use the facilities of the centre to create all kinds of works of art, from jewellery to furniture and interior objects.

The primary users of the Centre are faculty members and students of BHSAD programmes such as Interior Design, Jewellery Design, BA (Hons) Product Design, and others, as well as students of MA Architecture and Urbanism programme at the Moscow Architecture School (MARCH).

In 2016-2017 academic year, BOSCH became strategic partner of the Centre for Model-Making and Prototyping. As part of this partnership, the company has provided electrical equipment which enabled our students to create even more exciting projects. Students of Jewelry Design: Basic Course programme also have at their disposal equipment by DREMEL which is designed for working with tailored materials.

Leroy Merlin is also Centre’s strategic partner in 2016-2017 academic year. The company has provided a wide range of hand tools and construction materials. The most interesting projects can be seen at traditional summer exhibition of graduates of British programs.
The Centre also features equipment manufactured by world-renowned companies such as Festool, Roland, Metabo, Jet, Proxxon, SATA, etc.
