Building the city of tomorrow

This project started out as a simple question I once asked myself: “what will our future look like?” As it is hard to imagine how the world would look like in 2070, I tried to imagine our future. The sea level will drastically rise and everybody will have to look for a solution without completely losing our traditions and ways of living. Robots would take over a certain part of manual work that is too dangerous for humans; people would practically have to live most of their life on platforms or underwater. I decided to make a big illustration that would depict our futuristic lifestyle on a platform. My illustration is meant to be shown on a screen. This way, the viewer can slowly scroll down the illustration and see different parts of our “futuristic” life; the upper part of the platform where the robots work, the middle part where the residents go to work and the lower part of the platform where the dormitories are.
