Radical Innovation in Hospitality: Oil Rig Converted into Wave-Powered Resort

Design firm Morris Architects took the prize for Hospitality Design Magazine’s ‘Radical Innovation in Hospitality‘ competition with their Oil Rig Platform Resort & Spa. The team transformed an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico into a resort running entirely on wind, solar, and wave-powered energy. Guest rooms are created from reclaimed cargo shipping containers furnished off-site, and air conditioning is provided by a geothermal pump. Photos & details on the competition here.
