An essential part of Fallout’s visual identity is that it’s heavily based on Americana, but concept artist Fernanders Sam wanted to explore what other parts of Bethesda’s nuke-blasted world would look like.
So he’s done a number of images imagining what Islamic architecture might look like amongst the radioactive wastes. There are similar themes as you’d find in actual Fallout games—the re-purposing of familiar modern landmarks and objects into something more suitable for a fallen age—but of course everything looks a little different without bobbleheads and baseball bats everywhere.
