This scale model of a section of the Seattle seawall is an excellent example of how useful and informative an engineering prototype model can be. Various layers can be removed to display the interior structure of the model, giving viewers an inside look at the construction of the seawall. Engineering models are integral to the design process to help inform decisions.
