Abstract This article’s aim is raising a question of project modelling and revealing methods of project modelling in architecture – subject area of architectural research, which is mostly undisclosed and uncertain already in its initial concepts. The work is based on O.Yaweins hypothesis of peculiar role of architectural transformations, also functioning as models and generators of architectural solutions. Those transformations may be discovered both by visual analysis and by viewing the drawing graphics. Certain objects, types and areas of project modelling are established in this article. Special attention is given to deliberately researched methods of project modelling of pioneers of Russian constructivism Vesninbrothers, MoiseiGinsburg, IlyaGolosov and AlexanderNikolskiy, which are studied by T.Vakhitov. Admissions, means and operations, such as geometric formation, functional schemes and axis systems projections and their connection with general architectural solution are analysed in the article. Its also shown how certain masters of architecture use those admissions, means and operations to construct their own architectural systems, on which the very methods are based.
Keywords: model, modelling, modelling system, structure, method, functional zones, drawing graphics, plan, grid, projection
