Mexico City or Sim City?

MexicoCity

When I saw the image above for the first time on the National Geographic website, after getting a link from the Revolution Analytics Blog, I was wondering why they took a screenshot from Sim City. Only on the second view I realized, that it is a real city. Did you notice? In fact it’s a real photo of a housing complex on the eastern outskirts of Mexico City, taken from a helicopter by photographer Oscar Ruiz. I am not sure if that is how the future city should look – actually I am sure that it shouldn’t.
