The Shard at Babbacombe Model Village was recently completed by Amalgam’s Architectural model makers. We used CNC’d recycled sheet material to create the rigid weatherproof internal structure of the Shard, and semi-reflective panels to create the distinctive silver external walls and windows. The model stands 3.5 metres tall.
The Shard is fully illuminated, and features a rotating camera set into its apex to capture a full panoramic view of Babbacombe Model Village. The Shard model features as the centrepiece for Babbacombe’s Easter evening event, ‘Illuminations,’ with the entire model village lit by lasers and thousands of internal lights in the windows, car headlights and streetlamps of the model village.
