Using a bit of Photoshop wizardry, Pittsburgh-based artist Nickolay Lamm has gone 500 years into the future, depicting familiar American architecture—the Jefferson Memorial, Statue of Liberty, etc.—after they've been affected by climate change. Using data provided by Climate Central, a site that makes climate scientists' finding available to the public, Lamm manipulated stock photos of quintessential American buildings—including the Deco-style structures in South Beach, above—to look like they are drowning in the encroaching waterfront, which could rise 20 to 25 feet in the next four to five centuries. More staggering images, below.
