I love cities. There’s something so intriguing to me about how they evolve to handle the people within it, and the people within it shape and are shaped by it. When I tend to go on holiday it is typically a city break.
Some of my favourite pieces of fictional work create cities that feel real. Whether these are entirely fictional cities or existing ones set in the future. One thing I love about Akira and Ghost in the Shell, particularly the mangas, is that the cities real realized. There are areas, boroughs and a sense of people living (or in some cases, avoiding) these areas. Unlike sometimes where cities are nothing more than landmarks and spaces between them.
