Who says dystopias have to be dark and gloomy?
Fun read from dezeen.
The post-apocalyptic architecture in sci-fi blockbuster Alita: Battle Angel is a diverse fusion of Panama’s vibrant ruins and Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City, say its creators.
Production designers Caylah Eddleblute and Steve Joyner told Dezeen that they looked to the “welcoming” nature of colourful Cuban and Latin American colonial architecture when creating the film set.
“We wanted to do something that was completely different and never seen before, so we looked to environments that were not typically used in these types of films,” said Joyner.
