Taken straight from the pages of L.W.A.P.D. this is a video by the Architect’s Journal showing their top five comic book cities. All are fantastic cityscapes but one of the complaints is that Gotham City (the skyline to Batman’s caped crusades) is destroyed to match Tim Burton’s description for his first two films. Films though can also be a fantastic source of beautiful cityscapes of the future such as Terry Gilliam’s Brazil or even animations like Sky Blue but also interpretations of what cities can become if the world goes horribly wrong such as Children of Men, is perhaps slightly more interesting, even if less spectacular.
