I've been collecting concept pieces that I find from all over the place for a long time now, most of these are futuristic in nature and usually involve landscapes of sorts. I thought I'd share some of my favorites on ATS, these all come from talented CG artists such as Alexander Popescu, Andrew Barton, Bastian Grivett, Staczek Marek, Tim Warnock and Tobias Roetsch.

Many people visualize the future, but these people allow us to see their visualizations. The future is full of possibilities, some of these images could perhaps, be actual glimpses into a world that's soon to come.

Enjoy the sights.

Those are some pretty impressive pieces of art. I especially like the one of the hill side with what-appears-to-be water falls falling into the town or reservoirs below. Star and Flag!

Just a few more years for this one,
and that last picture looks like something out of Halo Reach.

Excellent art!
And expect similar real places in the future.

That is where all designs start from anyway "the imagination"
Imagination becomes reality.

Fantastic Pics, I loved the second one, you can really see the artist's vision there. All these pics, from what I can see, have taken a lot of effort to become a reality.

Its artists like these that will shape our future, and all for the better.

I love futuristic art. Nice pictures & very creative.


If you're interested in the future, then you should definitely checkout the "The Usborne Book of the Future". I particularly like the picture of the Beanstalk skyscraper.

I love these pictures...however, it appears to be leaving out some very real possibilities.


this may be the most common site around the world

Awesome pics Star and Flag!


Can't beat the opening scene from Bladerunner though truly epic!

Also does anyone else think Sail City the 3rd pic, involves a massive waste of space? How would they utilise those sail like structures for maximum efficiency? Particularly in an overcrowded world as the future will most likely be I'm not sure how the architect would justify such a creation.

The world may not be as overcrowded as you think, studies show it may end up sticking at around a 10-12b mark due to education, economy, etc...pretty interesting study on it actually...we are winding down in the west already.

But even so...who says pic 3 must be earth...could be bubble cities in the moon, or mars.

I think if the earth becomes too overly populated though, we will start digging down verses building up.

Interesting question, they do look pretty useless don't they.

But what about energy uses?

Surely they could be used as either wind/energy farms, or perhaps as solar panels. Why not a fusion of both? Natural energy utilization should be key with all modern architecture.

I would love to be alive to see cities like some of the pics show, maybe in around 500 years we will have cities like these. Oh well...very good thread though. The 4th and 8th picture are very cool, the 7th i would say is around a century away.
And i think energy use in the future will be nuclear/fusion...renewable is imo a waste of time unless it's simple local energy production, but not for large scale use..that's just a pipe dream for environmental extremists. Plus i think technology will start using far less energy in the future.

True, valid point.

I think concepts like the one in image 14 aren't too far away. I could definitely see something like that in Dubai or in a city with huge investments in the near future. 8 star hotels, anyone?

Dubai will not make those big moves for a while I guess, they were almost bankrupt as far as I know.

The second picture is concept art of Naboo from the Star Wars prequels. The artists are truly talented, if i didnt know these things didnt exist I'd think some of those images were real.

Or any other city which has huge financial backing.

Indeed, I think the visualizations of today are the realizations of tomorrow.

Great thread idea, I'm also a fan of sci-fi concept art/matte paintings and lo-fi video productions, some of those artists out there are very inspiring and the visions unfolding before ones eyes are truly thought-provoking.

Here some pictures I admire:

Ignacio Bazan Lazcano





Alex Kozhanov

"DOADOA"
So who's on 'your' mInd?
Sounds 'terminal'.

Atlantis seems like the most 'productive' option.
Everyone 'participates'.
Everyone 'benefits'.

What 'has been' will Be agAin.
.....though I could be wrong.
as in maybemaybeNot
good one.

Hopefully over population won't be a major problem in the future, as we'll be off exploring space and colonising other worlds.
