About This Project

Skyscrapers

Richard Chin

This exhibit showcases, inside the Smallest Museum in Saint Paul, the largest things that man can build: skyscrapers. How? By displaying architecture on a micro scale in the form of tiny souvenirs and models of some of the world’s greatest manmade landmarks. These miniatures illustrate how the essence of truly distinctive or iconic architectural design can be captured in the crudest lump of pot metal, and their existence in souvenir form illustrates our need and desire to possess the monumental.
