This is the initial sketch for the International City on Venus in the Hive, Queen and Country game universe. This is the prime Terran toehold on that alien world, built late in the 1890s and early twentieth Century. The area chosen is on the site of a series of ancient meteor strikes. The site is heavily defended by a number of land front and coastal fortifications. The Great powers of Earth did their best to both impress the cultures of Venus and to outdo each other in terms of grandeur and modernity. Every new theory of urban design was incorporated.
