From the foundations, amid the machines and the people who laboured, rose a sky city. Instead of the housing eating up the land it took up the sky and headed on up to the clouds. Once it was done the city would become forest and space for tower aquaponics, our new way to grow food. The building site looked like nothing at all, the guys and gals sitting about with their sandwiches come lunchtime and the music singing out from vintage radios. It was the start of the future, something we could embrace and be excited for.

Right now the building was no more than an ugly skeleton on steel girders and prefabricated concrete slabs. It was surrounded by a swarm of men in hard hats. There were bulldozers, cement mixers, and towering above them all, a huge, canary yellow crane. A sign read: RIVERVIEW HOUSE. And below it: ALL VISITORS REPORT TO THE SITE OFFICE.
