His Imagination Inspires Architectural Designs that Will Give You a Peek At the Future

By Anne Cacherell

Belgian master of comic art Baron Francois Schuiten is best known for creating the 1983 series Les Cites Obscures (Cities of the Fantastic). Flowing through his designs are blended elements of the past and the future, and inter-mixtures of Art and Science. Surprisingly, the combination of all those components crossed the real world and opened a portal that gave people a glimpse of the future.

Raised by a family of architects, this series of imaginary cities that he created gives particular emphasis on a world where architects and urbanists are the leading powers and the driving force behind the society.

Feel his creative energy and take a look at some of his scientific fantasies in some of his works below.
