Ku Yee Kee, Hor Sue-Wern / Transforming abandoned oil platforms in habitable structures it has been modified: 2011-05-26 di jessica zannori

This project addresses current environmental issues, in particular at oil facilities abandoned worldwide. The idea is to revitalize these structures and turn them into hubs livable. This activation process uses green energy and

creates a sustainable urban habitat. Solar energy is collected by a large photovoltaic system on the roof, while the wind turbines will be located at strategic locations along the four sides of the collectors and tidal energy down. This project explores the possibility of living on the oil rig, above and below the ocean level. The general population can live above the water while the specialized researchers, such as marine biologists work in laboratories submarines. The intermediate zone will be used for residential and recreational areas. The existing structures may be strengthened with the use of peripheral steel beams that allow the wind to filter through the platform without obstructions.
