Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines is a book series written by Philip Reeve, and my design project involved taking a location from his book to turn into a feature set. I chose the city of Airhaven to design as I loved the descriptions of a city that had attached itself to air balloons and took off to the skies in a post-apocalyptic world.

I drew inspiration for my design from the cities of Amsterdam and Venice as I wanted to ground Airhaven in a real place. If the city had once been on the ground, it might’ve originated from one place which had since been built upon and adapted for life in the skies.
