Yeah they were extremely progressive. No matter your race or sex, all get the gulag equally.
The handful of mysterious fossils sat unstudied for decades, tucked safely in a drawer at the Nairobi National Museum in Kenya. But now, analysis of the ancient remains has revealed that they belonged to a giant meat-eating mammal larger than a polar bear, a newly described species that’s been dubbed Simbakubwa kutokaafrika.
Old Peranakan shophouses and a church with a sorta Scandinavian aesthetics
"you can opt out of this" is ominous as fuck. because it's only true until they decide it isn't.
That's sick. I want more buildings to look like that in the future. Natural light + greenery + water makes being indoors nice.
I really dig the style of architecture that incorporates nature with modern design. Lots of glass, stainless steel, concrete, mixed among green grass roofs and trees and nature. With stuff like solar panels mixed in. I don't know what the style is called, sadly.
Stuff like this:
VINCENT CALLEBAUT ARCHITECTURES
Progress through harmony with nature. Cities should be just as green as they are grey.
Been there. Can confirm it looks amazeballs
A leaked photo from Union Pacific's steam shop:
It seriously looks fuckin rad
Now imagine every urban area had this aesthetic
All of the hype.
Hanging Gardens 2: Renewable Electric Boogaloo
Some of the older cheaply built skyscrapers in major cities are getting up there in age, maybe once they start requiring demolition we can start replacing them with fancy-ass green buildings with arboretums
Stalker 2 is gonna be BALLIN
The term I usually hear for this kinda aesthetic is "solarpunk".
Doesn't 'punk' imply a dystopian element though? I see the green futurism aesthetic as purely utopian
People these days basically slap punk onto anything that emphasises a strong visual aesthetic or alternate technological progression or "this era, but the future". It seems to vary depending on the type of technology involved. I don't see a lot of dystopia in most, say, dieselpunk settings which instead push the retrofuturism and "the 20s/40s but sci-fi", but you'd be hard-pressed to find anything labled biopunk that doesn't live up to the title.
Steampunk started the habit of people using it as a generic attachment along with every other bad habit. People who use it improperly aren't likely to be convinced to stop.
eh, I could see this as being a good setting for some sort of "utopian setting but with underlying social/societal problems" thing
WipEout concept art
So, is WipEout cyberpunk or post-cyberpunk?
i mean, it can be dystopian because of the whole implication of it being done to prevent climate change
I tend to see it as kind of post-collapse, building on top of the ruins of the old world kind of dystopia
It's what comes after our current trajectory plummets us off a cliff, and only a handful survive.
I find this incredibly fascinating in some way.
How do they stop it from flooding? If it does.
The water gets into drainage pipes and they go up again
