After the sea levels rise, airships, rowboats, and gondola lifts with replace New York's subways and taxi cabs. The Aqualta series imagines New York 40 years into the future, when the city's once-crowded streets have filled with quiet waters.

The series, created by Studio Lindfors, imagines how New York and Tokyo would be transformed by rising sea levels, and how residents might adapt to life in their watery cities. While it shares common themes with post-apocalyptic images, it's not an entirely dismal view of the flooded future.
