Chisel & Mouse, the British company known for its exacting small scale building replicas, released a new line of sculptures to celebrate Bauhaus’ 100th anniversary. The series is like a mini architectural tour of the most famous structures associated the design school, including Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus Dessau and Fagus Factor, Adolf Loos’s Moller House, and Peter Behrens’ AEG Turbine Factory and Behrens House.

The designers craft the buildings out of molded plaster and metal etching. Though they’re small—anywhere from 5 to 11 inches tall, 2.5 inches deep, and approximately 5.5. pounds—no detail goes unnoticed, including the Dessau’s signature sans-serif signage and the Fagus Factory’s windows and interior stairs.

Keeping the Dessau on your bookshelf doesn’t come cheap—the buildings cost $270 each—but it’s a respectable alternative to buying a plane ticket.
