This exhibition is now closed
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 GMJ (external link) illustrators Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones.
The display brings home the full impact of global warming, food scarcity, rising sea levels and how all Londoners will need to innovate and adapt to survive.
Examples of the striking images that will be on show include Parliament Square put to work as a rice paddy, ice skating down the Thames, Buckingham Palace surrounded by a sea of shanty housing and the Gherkin occupied by thousands of eco-refugees highlight the shocking realities we could face.
The display and related events form part of the Mayor’s Story of London festival (external link) and is funded by Renaissance London (external link).
Postcards from the Future, a postcard booklet of photomontages from the display, will be available to buy in the Museum of London shop for £8.
