Scale models of a selection of works by prominent Uruguayan architects.

The Masters of National Architecture collection, developed by vidiaLab and Fab Lab MVD, includes scale models of Vilamajó and Payssé Reyes Houses, Cristo Obrero Church of Eladio Dieste, among others.

The purpose of this project is to bring  value to a series of works of the architectural and cultural heritage of Uruguay, to carry them closer to the community. In addition, it constitutes a process of appropriation of contemporary technological paradigms, capable of representing -from a formal reinterpretation- part of the national architectural catalog.

VidiaLab and Fab Lab MVD carried out measuring, modeling and digital manufacturing tasks for the production of models and packaging which are part of the collection.
