Model Making Workshop

Modellbauwerkstatt der FH Potsdam
© Michaela Maier

The model making workshop is universally equipped and can thus meet a wide range of requirements. The workshop is assigned to the department CITY | BUILDING | CULTURE, but can also be used interdisciplinarily and is thus also open to design students, for example.


In terms of hand tools, the workshop has enough equipment for eight people to attend a workshop course. Two group workbenches, each with four workstations, are available for students working traditionally. Three separate workrooms are available for students.
