Cloud At­las ' Neo Seoul 2044

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - George Hull -

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
