Miniature Paper Models By Terada Mokei

Naoki Terada, architect and founder of Terada Mokei, totally takes my breath away with his intricate miniature paper models. The 1/100 scale architectural model, originally created for his work, has since become part of an atmospheric series of miniature scenes and themes.

The narrative scenes range from everyday life and events, major cityscapes, to Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic (Ice age) eras. Most of Terada Mokei’s miniature model is based upon a single color, which brings out the rich and intricate details.

Some of my favorite miniature models include grape picking, wedding/chapel, open air cafe, and cherry blossoms. See more of the miniature series here.
