Strip The City 2

Image 1 / 5

Strip The City uses stunning CGI animation and expedition-driven actuality to strip major cities naked of their steel, concrete, air, ocean and bedrock - layer by layer, act by act - to explore their hidden infrastructure and solve key mysteries surrounding their origins, geology, archaeology, industry, weather and engineering. How can New York protect its massive Subway system from flooding when the next Superstorm hits the city? Why is Venice sinking into the sea - and how can engineers protect this jewel of the Adriatic without damaging its ancient buildings? How can 13 million people live in Tokyo - when there is so little space between the mountains and the sea? And how can a city survive in one of the most dangerous earthquake zones on the planet? This series explores these mysteries by following exciting scientific expeditions and using extensive CGI animation.
