Growth of Charlotte

Metropolis

Metropolis is a video of the growth of Charlotte, North Carolina. The entire video is 9 minutes long, but this is the last 3 minutes since the beginning was only a slideshow of photos. The last 3 minutes show how the city has changed within 20 years. It is a completely different experience to see it being played out this way because you actually see how the city changes, what is build, what is torn down, what is moved, you can see the entire landscape changing. People can tell you all they want about what was built where and how the city was before, but by seeing this, you are effectively comparing the city it was to the city it is now, 1 small piece at a time and therefore you’re able to see each and every change that was made on the city and how it developed.
