Living in a world with(out) oil

Turning oil tanks into dwellings in a post oil world

More Info


We are getting close to the so called peak of oil and this will result in a shortage of oil and therefore oil products. We can assume that the oil industry will get in decline, therefore we should think about the heritage that the oil industry will leave behind. An iconic element of the petrol industry is the oil storage tank. We can knock these tanks down, but what if we could repurpose them. This paper will set an example by repurposing an oil tank into multiple dwellings.
