Metropolitan Craft

Today we’re showcasing Metropolitan Craft, an architectural model company run by Laurence Srinivasan in San Francisco. Each piece is a to-scale model of a Bay Area landmark, a perfect for SF natives or folks who left the city earlier than they would have liked.

Laurence describes his project this way:

“In a way the Sutro Tower is like an undiscovered landmark of San Francisco. I think people have mainly perceived it as background industrial blight. However, this tower is quite elegant, it’s also the tallest structure in the Bay Area. Once I started selling the Sutro Tower [model], I discovered there was a widespread fondness for it! We’ve expanded now to offer the Container Cranes of Oakland as a table top sculpture… showing a little love to the East Bay.”

The wood is finished before lasercutting, then etched and scored by the laser to render the details. The result is a beautifully designed tribute to the architectural symbols of San Francisco.
