Closing the Flood Gates

Scientists predict that by 2100, global temperatures may rise 5°C, resulting in a 2.3 meter sea level rise and New York City climate change from subtropical to tropical. This animation takes an existing building, 805 Greenwich St, New York, and shows the alterations required if changes are not made to prevent global warming. This film is a plea for the world to change their habits to prevent global warming. Music: Secret Squirrel by Yasuaki Shimizu.
