Cloud Atlas ' Neo Seoul 2044
George was tasked with imagining a future Seoul, after rising seas have semi-submerged the city “The idea in these images is that massive levees were constructed to hold back rising ocean. The semi-submerged city is now populated by the working class that service New Seoul, which sprawls up the mountainside.
“You can see shack dwellings built up on the levee walls like a coral reef, and shanty town flotillas constructed around halfsunken skyscrapers. I love thinking about how humans would adapt to future scenarios whenever possible in my work. Ideas trump technique every time in this business.”
“Gunship attack along illuminated freeways.” “I had a vision of the tops of giant buildings rising up as islands.” “How would society adapt and survive?
I love thinking through a design challenge, using my imagination as
well as stylisation skills.” FLOO DED SKYSCRAPER S OF OL D SEOUL
