Early in 2015 our design team was tasked with conceptualising the look and feel of Los Angeles in 2049. Set 30 years on from the first film, the city is now blanketed in a layer of thick smog, constant rain, and snow due to the extreme pollution that now engulfs the world. Rising through the smog is Wallace Tower, dwarfing the deserted Tyrell Corporation building. We explored several variations for this foreboding, monolithic structure; we wanted to create something bold and new while still echoing the infamous design aesthetic established by the original film. We also looked at the polluted atmosphere from street level, allowing us to explore the environment's effect on the city's inhabitants.
