London After the Apocalypse


What will the major cities of the world look like after the inevitable civilization-ending catastrophe that we keep imagining will happen? Visual artist Richard Hardy, a graduate of London’s Bartlett School of Architecture, put together a short video titled The Eco-Commune, which explores one possibility. Set in London 2050 to a soundtrack that reminds us of Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, Hardy depicts a nearly abandoned urban landscape where nature makes a slow yet stubborn return as humans begin again.
