Designing Post-Carbon Dunkirk With Students From TU Delft

Taking the concept and historical analysis of the petroleumscape as the point of departure, the twelve week Master-level design studio “Architecture and Urbanism Beyond Oil” tackled the question of the future of post-oil cities at TU Delft. This time they looked at Dunkirk, a city in Northern France, where hazardous industries, refineries, huge steel plants, petroleum tanks, and other industrial structures have long dominated the landscape.
