Model of Hogwarts castle was built for the first film, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” and has since been used in every movie.
It took 86 artists and 74 other members of the team to build it. Model is 16 meters in diameter. Light effects are changing every 4 minutes a day at night, and in the towers burning torches which create the impression of a residential castle.
Author of this castle, production designer Stuart Craig was awarded the prestigious Bafta for his work.
