YOU DON'T NEED TO BE AN ARCHITECT

...to appreciate the sculptural beauty of cityscapes captured in museum-quality 3D-printed models. Microscape is scanning complete cities and turning them into sets of modular "tiles" that can be collected, hung on the wall like paintings or used to personalize your desk at work.

From the world's major metropolitan centers to suburban cul-de-sacs, Microscape combines our own, highly detailed 3D scan data with manual computer modeling techniques to create completely customizable scale architectural models that are as accurate as they are beautiful.
