Computer-generated architecture creates an eerily photorealistic London post-apocalypse

Computer-generated people and animals may still fall into the uncanny valley, but some CG architectural renderings are just plain uncanny, leading you through a version of a familiar city that never really existed. In Megalomania, we get a tour of an empty and decaying London.

Gales and Factory Fifteen created the short film Megalomania to explore the state of a city in decay. The London depicted is definitely crumbling, but does all that scaffolding suggest that someone has returned to build the city?
