Models: The Citites of Akuam

Imagine a fantasy movie that takes you to an underwater world, where the buildings are alive and ever-changing. They are not made of bricks or steel, but of organic and bio-mechanical materials that can grow and adapt. The city is home to humans who dwell in pods that serve as their apartments. These pods can detach and reattach to form new complexes, or even travel across the ocean floor on their own.
This is the vision and intention that the models communicate to the audience.
