video: istanbul in 2040


Forum for Future Action for Sustainable World presented 4 scenarios of dystopia for the Megacities of 2040. Considering the rapid growth of and the “mad” projects planned for Istanbul, these animations can provide a caricatured representation of what is expecting the Istanbulites in the coming decades.

Megacities on the move presents four vivid scenarios exploring exploring how population growth, the energy we use, the strength or weakness of global institutions and other factors will shape our cities in 2040 and the way we access goods, services, information and other people. They have been brought to life in animations created by Grain Media.
