Interesting... reminds me a special on Voyager 1 & 2 and how they were launched around the 70's and how they're likely to last long after almost everything on earth crumbles to dust. They'll likely be gliding through space for a very very long time. Also, most structures on earth aren't made to last very long without maintenance.

I love this. I love seeing those Shanghai skyscrapers that I'm so familiar with, yet with the inclusion of something post-apocalyptic, but peaceful and natural.

I just imagined me looking down at this part of town when i was in the Shanghai world financial center and then thought about the city coated in green.  I loved it when i visited China.  Can't wait till i go to the burj khalifa.  Then im going to imagine the city coated in green like your other ruins.

It might eventually, but it would probably take thousands of years. Keep in mind, it's not just the occupation of humans, but the climate conditions and geographical features that make a region a desert. For instance, deserts often form behind mountain ranges due to the rain shadow effect.

no, actually it's not the bank of china tower (might look a little like it)
the bund is actually on the other side of the water, across Pudong
