Old and new

Sign in to follow this  


By the year 50, the city of Metropolis was choking, both on its growing deficit and by the thick plumes of smoke belched out by the industrial districts. Central government would have declared the city as a 'write-off' if it weren't for a few shining gems in the centre of the carbon blanket. A district renowned for its amateur dramatics societies had spawned some of the most spectacular theatres in the world. By the year 35 Metropolis had to its name the largest and grandest opera house in the world, as well as the biggest theatre stage in the region which hosted acts from around the world. So, central government set about to allocate unlimited funds to save the Metropolitan theatre district.


The theatre district now sits in beautiful juxtaposition with the district of commerce. The vision of old and new becomes most poignant at night when the diamond white office lights of the Paragon Twin Tower Complex shine over the purple-gold lamps of the Raffles Shopping Centre.



Another gift the re-development scheme gave Metropolis was the central gardens. An artificial lake was crafted out of the soft top soil and over 10,000 trees of several species were planted around it. To this day, Metropolis (now called Paragonia) takes solace in knowing that the relaxing paradise of central gardens is a leaf's blow away from the towering concrete jungle of the commercial district.

Are you clicking on the images? Clicking on them takes you to imageshack and clicking on them again blows them up to full size. I've even re-uploaded the images to 1024x768 so there shouldn't be a problem.
