BLDGBLOG is featuring a series of images called Aqualta by Studio Lindfors that depict Tokyo and Manhattan after a catastrophic flood. From BLDGBLOG:Similar in spirit to Squint Opera's earlier look at a Flooded London, Aqualta is hard-if not impossible-to separate from the context of melting ice caps and global climate change. However, it deserves visual attention in its own right, even outside such politically charged discussions.Far from stoking fear about a coming catastrophe, both of these projects-Studio Lindfors and Squint Opera-offer a vision in which people, and the cities they live in, have learned to adapt to the overwhelming presence of water.See the BLDGBLOG post or head over to Flickr for a full set of the images.
