Microscape Allows You To Own The Entire Island Of Manhattan

1

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.

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.
