London City Scape 1:5000
In 2011, brothers Robert and Gavin Paisley decided they were done with their business “developing back-office systems software.” “We were desperate to make something with our hands,” says Gavin. The duo set about choosing a new creative business and hit the jackpot with architectural-model-making, using both traditional plaster-cast methods (hence “Chisel”) and modern 3-D printing and computer-aided design (CAD) technology (hence “Mouse”). They set up the Chisel & Mouse studio and from here, the Paisley boys work on both elements of the Chisel & Mouse business: a collection of models based on popular landmarks and buildings and the bespoke angle, working with clients to make an any-size maquette of their own home, favorite architectural structure, or even an entire section of a much-loved city.

This 3d map of London, at a scale of 1:5000, is of "the City" - London's hub of trade, commerce, and banking. It is a single plaster tile measuring 30x30cm encapsulated in a perspex frame. The model can wall hang or be displayed on a desk or table top.
London is one of the world's oldest great cities. It grew from three centres: the Roman settlement in the 1st century on the northern banks of the Thames, now known as "the City"; Southwark on the southern banks; and Westminster upstream. London expanded rapidly. The Great Fire of 1666 led to the proposal of many radical rebuilding schemes but these came to little. Instead London was rebuilt piecemeal driven by capitalism and housing demands. London's population passed one million by 1800 and had reached 6.5 million a century later. Its structure is immensely complicated and there is little discernible form. Unsurprisingly it is not characterised by any particular architectural style with its buildings having been amassed over such a long period of time.
