Re(de)finery: Kuwait post oil

What will happen to oil refineries in a future without oil?

In Kuwait, oil refineries are both a significant piece of infrastructure and an important part of the country’s industrial heritage. The designer has explored the potential of oil refineries in a post oil era, proposing a four-phase adaptable process for Shuiaba refinery as a case study. Through partial deconstruction, research and site remediation, the refinery is transformed into a vertical farming site, adapting to a new era of sustainable production.
