Nickolay Lamm has partnered with a computational geneticist to research and illustrate what humankind might look like in 20,000, 60,000 and 100,000 years from now.

According to Design Taxi: 

In about 20,000 years we will sport “a larger forehead,” based on the fact that the forehead “has already been expanding” since the 14th and 16th centuries.


60,000 years from now, Kwan believes that genetic engineering will become the norm, allowing us to end up looking exactly like how we want to look—think plastic surgery but much more prevalent and a lot more serious.


Approximately 100,000 years from now, the human face might feature “total mastery” over our “morphological genetics.” It’s possible that all of us will have “strong, regal lines,” a straight nose, intense eyes and perfectly symmetrical faces that correspond with the golden ratio.
