    If you are only looking fo make a model to see how the space will interact with its surroundings, then the best thing I could suggest would be make a stick frame and then use a thin plastic sheet, like the ones used for transperancies, to cover the inside of the frame. This would make a basic model to convey the idea.


    I suppose then that using an aquarium with a glass top, a few plants in it and instruments, like a thermometer, hygrometer, and barometer, to measure the environmental factors within it would show results almost instantly. Take measurements after changes, such as amount and angle of sunlight, change in exterior humidity and temperature.
