These Beautiful Floating Villages Are Made From Old Oil Tankers ... "In a future world without oil, we'd end up with thousands of unusable massive oil tankers, some as long as 40-story buildings. Instead of sending them to scrapyards, a team of architects wants to turn them into floating neighborhoods.

The supply of ships isn't hypothetical: Every year, as old tankers wear out, they're already being scrapped. Most end up in shipyards in places like India and Bangladesh, where workers are paid a few rupees a day to attack steel hulls with blowtorches. It's dangerous—hundreds of workers have died from falling steel or explosions over the last decade in India alone—and the ships themselves are considered toxic waste. But by giving the hulls new value in development, the architects hope to change the disposal process.

Their target market is the Middle East, where developers are already pouring money into projects like artificial islands in Dubai and new skyscrapers for Abu Dhabi and attempting to create newly iconic designs. But what could be more iconic than reusing actual oil infrastructure?

"Wealth, power and cultural enlightenment has come to this region because of its oil history," says Dutch designer Chris Collaris, who created the conceptual design for The Black Gold with Ruben Esser, Sander Bakker, and Patrick van der Gronde. "But that oil history—or current status—can only be seen on big seas and big harbors. Why not really embed it visible in your built culture and society? It's so powerful and breathtaking to have this mega structure at a long beach working as a real functional building."

After carving out the internal structure of a megatanker, the designers propose turning it into an airy public space for events, a museum, shops, and even housing, with a park-like area on the top deck. At over 1,300 feet long, some tankers could easily accommodate an entire neighborhood. ..."
