Video: Will Croydon Look Like This One Day?

CG Artist Howard Gardener has made an amazing video imagining the future of Croydon.

He was inspired by the 2012 Judge Dredd film and the 1980s anime classic Akira.

His three-minute epic envisages a future Croydon littered with 200-storey brutalist tower blocks, plus monorails, jet-powered, space-ship style TfL buses, and other flying cars... all alongside footage from today, showing familiar road signs, bus routes and shopping centres.

The result is a wonderfully bizarre mash-up of what our near future might just look like.
