Some notes on it:
This was primarily designed to be printed large and viewed up close in an exhibt. I wanted people to linger on it, and sacrificed the quick read for the details.
I modeled much of this in 3DS Max, rendered in Mental Ray, and put a lot of 2D finish work into it using Photoshop.
A statement for it:
The city's priority is sustainability, reflecting the nurturing aspects of nature in alignment with the conservationist values of its South African population. It also celebrates indigenous art, taking inspiration from mandalas, vibrant color, and fractal recursion. The coast has been reshaped in the spirit of the Dutch, in response to rising sea levels and more severe storms.
Large artificial islands allow for common gathering places for culture and commerce, some permanently anchored and others transient. Solar energy is taken in part from large artificial trees above dense structures, which also function as docks for swarms of autonomous courier drones. Vertical farming and aquaponics are applied where possible, minimizing distance transportation and enabling local solidarity.
as a result of global warming, not only will the ocean level rise,the atmosphere will be 5 times larger. cities will change, but how the person himself will change? there will be more protection from uv and asteroids, insects will become big, and what will people be like at 5 atmospheres?
