The Financier of the American Revolution, Robert Morris, wanted a grand city house, so in 1794 he hired Peter L'Enfant, the designer of Washington DC, as the architect. Construction of this house in Philadelphia was never complete. However, now, for the first time in over 200 years, it is finished, in miniature. The original was about 120 feet (36.5 meters) by 65 feet (19.8 meters), and stood three and a half stories high. It was made of brick and white marble, with an iron roof. It had to be 3D printed in several pieces, but once they are assembled, the building comes to life.
