The dystopia that wasn’t

Helsingin Sanomat

I don’t speak a word of Finnish, but the beauty of visual journalism is that if it’s done well, it works even without words. In this case: What a hellish car-centered nightmare Helsinki might have become had plans from the 1960 been realised. Helsingin Sanomat has dug up those old plans and visualised them in stunning manner (that first animation: 🤯). Check out the original first (and let Google Translate be your friend afterwards – some of the visual elements don’t work in the translated version)
