Description

Best known for creating the City of Chicago Model at the Chicago Architecture foundation, (over 600 blocks and 4000 3d printed buildings), we also work for Museums like MSI (full scale model of the Mars Rover Curiosity, model of the White House circa 1801 and Model of U505 sub exhibit).

In business for 30 years, CMEW makes scale models and exhibits for senior living communities (CCRC), real estate developers, large corporations, museums, foundations, attorneys, movies and TV shows. We work nationally and internationally. Our team, Catherine Tinker, John Schnell, William Bauman and Romel Rodriguez, is trained in architecture, product design, painting and sculpture, computer science and law. We also make trial exhibits to help attorneys explain the theory of the case and trade show displays.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
