What if the cities we are designing today are not actually the futuristic utopias for the modern word, but rather the fragile materialistic fridges of our future dystopias? Today we are showcasing Eli Keller’s graphically stunning architectural exploration through collage into the creation of a Dystopia. Eli Keller sees Tel Aviv as the perfect storm where this lively urban culture is slowly losing its own identity; a victim of the modern world. You can see this in modern throughout the world, where the buildings and cities we live in have lost their sense of place. The glass screens on our phones and the glitter of modern buildings have forced us into a blasé attitude towards the world, blinding us to the loss of our cultural identities. Check it out after the jump!
