A Quillen model category satisfying certain additional conditions can be shown to interpret homotopy type theory, as does for instance Voevodsky’s model in simplicial sets. But the converse is also true: given a certain kind of abstract model of HoTT (as in the work of Orton & Pitts), one can endow the underlying category with a Quillen model structure, as was first shown by Sattler. A crucial role is played by the principle of univalence, which implies that the universe of fibrant objects is itself fibrant, by an argument due to Coquand.
