Microscape Allows You To Own The Entire Island Of Manhattan


New York-based architectural and design firms AJSNY and TO+WN want to give you the opportunity to own a 3D-printed model of the entire island of Manhattan at 1:500 scale that can be used to decorate, your wall, desk or coffee table.

The model comes in the form of over 200 six-inch square tiles that represent a specific part of the city. Using detailed aerial scans, the designers were able to include nearly every building in the city.

Check out more pics and the project video below.




The project is currently the focus of a Kickstarter campaign that offers individual tiles for $75 – a price that will eventually increase to $125 after the campaign ends. There will also be a special-order version that includes every tile for the astronomical price of $25,000.

The Kickstarter reached it’s funding goal quickly, so expect microscapes of other cities around the globe to become available in the near future.
