RaabeWorks specializes in hand-crafted, hand-finished sculpted models for architects, designers, and artists. We have been building James Turrell‘s models in partnership with Cross Architecture for his Autonomous Spaces works since 2007.

Our workshop is located in the South Bronx in New York City. The stunning views that overlook the river, flood the sculptures with light every evening as they’re being built. We begin shaping the ideas - either from plans, photographs or drawings - using 3D CAD software. We then work with plaster, pigment and wood, as well as waxes and metal, to sculpt the museum pieces. Finished by hand with natural textures, the process produces works of art that are designed to last.
