Designers Created Detailed 3D Models of Chicago Streets Using Aerial Scans
An ace of transforming architecture into sculpture, Microscape, is back with another point by point detailed model of an adored American city. After the huge success of their New York City scale demonstration, they are back with another 1:5000 scale copy of Chicago.
Microscape’s 3D printed cities are completely customizable. Coming in square segments that allow you to choose the zones of the city you adore the most or fit together a few territories like pieces of a puzzle. For the Windy City, the company has made the copy from 9 square miles of the downtown region. It’s broken into 36, 6-inch by 6-inch squares. So whether you need a model of Willis Tower on your desk as an architectural sculpture or the full downtown map as a piece of wall art, Microscape helps with that.

Also, since you can have as little—or as much—of the Chicago replica as you’d like, you can appreciate the excellence of an architectural scale model without having to sacrifice space in your home or office. A searchable map on their site allows you to see the different areas of the site model that are accessible. It’s giving you a chance to type in a landmark or street address to get to the quadrant that suits your requirements.
