Global Warming City
During the last couple of years there has been an increased awareness on global warming and its tragic consequences. It is possible that many coastal cities will be underwater after the melting of the polar ice-caps. In an effort to save these cities many visionary architects have started to draw different ideas. Turkish architects Sinan Gunay and Mustafa Bulgur propose City(e)scape as a series of structures attached to skyscrapers to create a second ground plane. Instead of preventing the flooding, the idea is to use the infrastructure for a secondary city at 70 meters above sea-level.  Although this idea might seem a bit radical and “desperate” it starts to imagine the possibility of making the most out of existing cities
