4D Map


This puzzle recreates Macau’s world famous skyline, not only in three-dimensions, using scale-model buildings, but also along the fourth dimension of time – spanning 457 years of architectural history. The puzzle includes the Macau Grand Prix “Glow in the dark” and 64 building replicas that depict the Macau Skyline as it appeared as far back as 1558 through to 2001, with the completion of the Macau Tower. The puzzle includes Macau World Heritage sites that other puzzles never have: such as Ruins of St. Paul’s , Kuan Tai Temple, A-Ma Temple, Mandarin’s House and the Holy House of Mercy. The base of the puzzle is a traditional 2D jigsaw puzzle that forms the city’s street layout, peninsula and mountains. During the process of constructing the base map, one learns about Macao’s neighbourhoods, streets, ports and more. Once the puzzle base is complete, the vertical building of Macao begins by placing 64 buildings in chronological time sequence. This is done by following the enclosed 4D Time Poster.
