In 1987, a few art historians selected over one hundred buildings from various parts of the EU. They based the selection on the following criteria: socio-cultural and architectural value. European symbolism the beauty of the site and the technical problems involved in putting together a replica on a scale of 1/25.

The scale (1/25) and the tremendous precision demanded of the model-makers called for accurate scale drawings and thousands of photograph of details. The contacts for this phase alone - in terms of correspondence and travelling expenses - and on-the-spot research work costed 200,000 euros. In some cases, the drawing were refused, and additional research work was required.

55 profesional workshops from 9 member states of the European Union were contacted to carry out the mammoth tssk involved in making the models. The models were made using a new technique that reproduces execptionally fine detail and guarantees execellent weather resistance.
First, the various parts were cut out of different materials (wood, cardboard,...) They were then mounted on a "Master" plate. A flexible silicon mould was made from this plate. The mould, designed to accurately reproduce every detail, was then filled with an epoxy resin or polyester. After drying for days, the cast was released from the mould to give the final result.
This process is very accurate but, unfortunately, it is also very slow. For example, it took 24,000 hours or work to complete the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela (the equivalent of one person working for 13 years!)

The electrically powered features were specially devised for MINI-EUROPE. They operate for around 2,900 hours per year in all weather conditions (like rain, wind or snow).
