Reimagining cities. New york

Un artista llamado Jeff Konigsberg, que vive en Nueva York y pudo comprobar en directo los efectos del paso del huracán Sandy, decidió realizar una serie de dibujos llevando al extremo el concepto de dique en la ciudad.

El resultado, estas ilustraciones planteando un futuro distópico para el paisaje de la gran manzana.


In the days following the flooding of NYC, I began this series of drawings. The first 7 of these images are directly in response to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. I decided to take the concept of sea walls to the extreme.

The remaining drawings reflect a more paranoid outlook. They’re about walling off sections of any city into self-governing City States. The walls contain and prevent damage from a range of real and perceived threats.
