    If they have these in museums I find myself with my back turned to the actual historical treasures so I can stare at a small model of the city I’ve literally just been walking around in. Can’t explain why.

This Works Progress Administration(WPA) project was conceived as a way of putting artists to work while also creating a planning tool for the city to imagine its future.

    The massive work was meant to remain on public view for all to see, but World War II broke out and the 6,000 piece, hand-carved and painted wooden model was put into storage for almost 80 years. [99% Invisible – Model City](https://99percentinvisible.org/episode/model-city/)

  3. I have a diploma in architecture-model-building.

    Whenever I see those models, I see all the work behind them. Models are amazing. Still love them, even though I switched careers by now.

    It makes me happy to see that people love them and that these artworks but a smile on their face 🙂
