These incredible images depict London in the future, ravaged by the effects of climate change where large areas of uninhabitable due to flooding, or where shanty towns filled with climate change migrants engulf famous landmarks, and where tropical species of animals have found new habitats.
Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones created these images explore the impact climate change will have on London and how Londoners will need to do adapt and innovate. It is interesting how striking and yet peaceful these images are. At once, a shock of the reality to come and the familiarity of the capital city. I will let the images do the rest of the talking and check out the website here for further information.
