The miniature artist Chris Toledo has the patience of a saint and the concentration of a Jedi. Each model created by him exactly repeats historical buildings and interiors, and is recreated according to real architectural plans of the past.
According to the master, the process of creating miniature houses is very similar to building a real house or room. He starts with a simple layout, then creates a more detailed project in a three-dimensional computer simulation program. When the project is ready, you can start construction – with the help of special tools that repeat real ones, but in a reduced form.
Chris fell in love with creating miniatures as a child when he went to Disneyland. He liked the idea that he himself could create dollhouses from sets that are sold in hobby shops, and he started from there. And then he started creating his own designs, mainly replicas of historical buildings. Gradually, from a secret hobby, this turned into a life-long affair and the main occupation is bringing income and recognition to people.
