Colosseo Quadrato in Rome is an example of neoclassical architecture. The building was built in 1937 and is 68m high. It was designed by architects Mario Romano, Ernesto Bruno La Padula, Giovanni Guerrini to pay homage to the Roman Colosseum. The style demonstrates how Rome and greater Italy might have looked if Mussolini's facist reign had continued with its austere building programme.

TRELLICK TOWER (L)

11in high, 6.5in wide, 2.5in deep & 5.5lb approximately.

Erno Goldfinger's Trellick Tower is a Grade II listed 31-storey block of flats in North Kensington. The tower is built in a narrow oblong with a separate lift tower linked at every third storey to the main block. Its Brutalist design was not to everyone's taste and was unpopular with many of its council tenants. However over the years the building has become highly desirable and home to up-and-coming designers and entrepreneurs. The building is striking and now has a place in architectural history as London's most iconic tower block.

GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART (M)

8in high, 5in wide, 2in deep & 3lb approximately.

Glasgow School of Art's Mackintosh Building, "The Mac" or "Toshie" as it is commonly known, was voted Britain's favourite building of the last 175 years in a 2009 RIBA poll. It has been at the heart of the Glasgow School of Art's campus. Building work was started in 1897 to a design created by the school's most famous alumnus, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He was a leading proponent of the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements in the United Kingdom. The Mackintosh Building is his masterwork. Unfortunately it was consumed by fire recently and its future is uncertain.

Our architectural sculpture is of the slightly off-centre entrance facade. The facade is asymmetric with tower like masonry walls and small windows remembering Scottish baronial architecture.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

Address: Glasgow School of Art, 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow, G3 6RQ, Scotland.

AMSTERDAM CITYSCAPE WITH BLUE WATER (S)
AMSTERDAM CITYSCAPE WITH BLUE WATER (S)

13in high, 13in wide, 2in deep & 7lb approximately.

Amsterdam has its origins in the 12th century when locals built a dam over the river Amstel leading to the village being named "Aemstelredamme". In the Middle Ages, Amsterdam was surrounded by a moat, called the Singel, which now forms the innermost ring in the city, and makes the city centre a horseshoe shape. The canal system was heavily developed in the early 17th century, considered the city's Golden Age, to accommodate large scale immigration. Four concentric half-circles of canals with their ends emerging at the IJ bay were constructed. Amsterdam is now home to more than one hundred kilometres of canals. It is thought that the considerations of the layout were purely practical and defensive rather than ornamental. The layout of the inner city canal ring was inscribed on the World Heritage List by Unesco in 2010.

This 3d map of Amsterdam, at a scale of 1:5000, is centred on the Royal Palace and includes the Singel, Prinsengracht, Herengracht and Keizersgracht. It is a single resin tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in an oak frame. Completed with metal etched blue water. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.

Acrylic cover optional.
