Representing iconic buildings from over 60 countries, the Collection is an important archive of popular architecture, or “a measure of places travelers have thought worth remembering.”

.@BuildingMuseum's new exhibit "Animals, Collected" isn't an ode to the band. Rather, it's a mish-mash of over 125 animal-themed objects dating back to the 1800s.

Quoted @nytimesarts

A collector donates some 3,069 shrunken landmarks to the National Building Museum https://nyti.ms/2Zr1KX3 

"The miniatures are “playful and fun” yet can also convey serious messages about demolished beloved buildings and people’s memories of travels and skylines." We're very excited about our newest Souvenir Building Collection!

Architecturally speaking, it is, in fact, a zoo out there. #AnimalsCollected opens tomorrow at @BuildingMuseum + showcases dozens of species of animals -- and why they were chosen to embellish the buildings and monuments all around us.
