Postcards from the Future

“Climate change is central to London’s future. It will affect every aspect of the city, from buildings and public spaces to the way Londoners live and work. What impact will climate change have?

A display of 14 arresting images will be on display at the Museum of London from 1 October 2010 to 6 March 2011. Like ‘Postcards From The Future’, familiar views of the capital have been digitally transformed by illustrators Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones.”

    The fate of Kew, St Pauls and The Humbug do not seem so far fetched.

    Amazing pictures, I love the Hyde Park Hilton as a tropical hotel.

    Interesting concepts. Some possibly exaggerated a little too far but the principle that our lives and our way of living is on course for a major change, a ‘reset’ if you will, is one I firmly believe in. Whether we’re ready for that change when it is brought upon us only time will tell.

    This is rather interesting. I would love to hear what Londoners have to say about this exhibit.
