Suspended City by J-Humphries Suspended City by J-Humphries
For this environmental concept, my goal was to combine aspects of both fantasy and science fiction, to make an image at once mystical and futuristic. I came up with the idea of a tree city that was built not of lumber, but of old spaceship parts, scavenged from an ancient colony ship that crashed on an forest world filled with sequoia like trees. Due to a forest floor teaming with hostile creatures and gasses, the survivors were forced to live in the canopy, taking apart their irreparable vessel over the centuries to create a network of hanging gardens and structures.

In this image, people take a break from their work to witness the seasonal appearance of glowing creatures, which float around the forest as jellyfish float in the ocean.

Arbor City by ~Vonmurder brings a whole new meaning to "treehouse". Simply magical and inviting. ( Suggested by Euphreana and Featured by Moonbeam13 )
