summary The significance of the full-scale mock-up as a tool depends, among other things, on the type and finish of the mock-up, the purpose of its use and the user. The qualities of the tool effect the way it can be used. By working with a new group of users, architecture students, and by supplementing our building system with blocks we now have gained new experience. In the first part of this paper we present the projects that we carried out in teaching, partly inspired by the collaboration with EFA-members. In the second part, we try to compare this experience with our previous work with lay-people. Since the outcome of full-scale modelling means different things to these two categories of users, it affects their relationship to the mock-up. A consequence of this is that the mock-up has to fulfil various demands and it is important to be aware of these and adjust the mock-up and the full-scale modelling procedure according to them.
