Microscape's Recommended Framed Arrangements take some of our most popular models and group them in a hand-made, solid hardwood frame. They ship to you ready to hang (or to lay flat on a table) and are truly unique decorative accents for your home, office, waiting room or lobby. All arrangements can also be customized -- just give us a call (+1 212-970-8870) or drop us an email (info@microscape.us).

The Complete 36-Model Microscape: Downtown Chicago Collection, measuring 36 inches by 36 inches (91.4 centimeters by 91.4 centimeters) and approximately 5.75 inches (14.6 centimeters) tall/deep.

This version of the collection is "sliced" at sea level and all models are permanently bonded to a 1/8 inch (.31 centimeters) thick plate of aluminum. The aluminum serves as the water surface for Lake Michigan and the Chicago River and is fitted with four Z-clips on its back surface to allow for easy hanging.

Please note that extra time is required for production and shipping of each Downtown Chicago Collection Model. Typical lead time is 4 to 5 weeks. If you have a specific date in mind by which you need to receive your finished piece, please contact us at service@microscape.co before placing your order.

Microscape models are detailed, 1:5000 scale replicas of cities. They're 3D-printed from our own accurate, up-to-date aerial scan data in a durable white thermoplastic that has a hard, almost ceramic feel.

Individual models are six inches square and abut to form larger arrangements. On a desktop, coffee table, shelf or wall -- alone or grouped together -- they capture the sculptural beauty of urban architecture in a truly unique and distinctive decorative accent piece.

"09-E, The Empire State Building arrived to the UK safe and sound, thanks! My fiancée will love it. This will be (one of) my wedding present(s) to her. Two years ago I proposed to her on top of the ESB and this week we will fly back to NYC and get married there. So, this model will mean much more to us than something pretty on our coffee table."

"I just wanted to thank you for getting the tile to my sister. She is thrilled with it, and now can take a piece of her neighborhood with her when she moves."

"I have just received my first order which is 03-B tile with the Foster’s WTC2 proposal. Absolutely gorgeous! I really wanted thank you for taking the time to make the adjustment. I am waiting for the other tile orders to be delivered and I just can’t wait. Now I wish to collect them all :) Thank you so much again and keep up the great work!"

"What a great addition to my office! I love the detail and scale of my Microscape sliver of Manhattan!"

"Most models you find on the web are less than convincing and quite kitschy, so I've been pretty excited to learn that your Microscapes are both incredibly detailed and affordable at the same time. They're very sophisticated, high-end quality products and definitely great pieces of art."

"The models are extraordinary and so beautiful. When you combine four or more models, they become even more graceful. Loved it!"

"I just wanted to let you know the package was delivered today – right on time. She is going to lose her mind when she sees it – it is so much more interesting and impressive and pretty in person. Also – kudos on the packaging method your guys came up with – easily the most impressively, creatively and effectively packaged item I’ve ever received. Thank you so much for everything. As soon as I give it over and she hangs it/displays it, I’ll snap a photo and share it on your FB. Thanks a million – no idea how I’m going to top this next year."

"I recently received my microscape and am delighted with it. My wife and I love New York City and we have more than a few maps and pictures on display around our Liverpool home. The Microscape tile will take pride of place among them."

"Got my updated version of Hudson Yards and One Vanderbilt with great details in Oct 2021. Many greats this time: 1. Improved printing quality since my last 2017 models. More details and finer. 2. The models were shipped promptly got it within 3 days in perfect shape! 3. Definitely improved quality for the transparent protection display box. A little thicker and more sturdy than the older version. Bought a few different versions of NYC 3D models from different companies online last 3 years when Microscape was offline. But none beats Microscape. With the best building scale and stunning building details. I will only stick to from now on..."
