ADS3: HORROR

Last time the earth was four degrees warmer than current temperatures there was no ice on the planet. The intergovernmental panel of climate change predicts a possible four-degree increase within the next hundred years. This project projects forward into the four-degree world where the face of the planet has changed.

The flood builders have reshaped London, introducing great piers that link the deepest sections of the city to London’s dry urban fabric. London has become one of a handful of the surviving great cities, beating with a powerful artery which allows its blood to continue to flow.
