Iron Island competition

YAC and MANNI Group launches a call for ideas to write the future of ancient oil platforms in the Iron Island competition.

Brief:

The old industrial buildings are titans of concrete and steel that rise in the landscape devoured by vegetation and time. Today, these platforms live out their exile abandoned to the rust and oblivion of the sea. The issue of decommissioning such machinery entails legislative vacuums. This is because internationally there is no unified and compelling vision about the future of these facilities.

Yet, while on the surface legislators are deciding which is the best action to take, something surprising has happened in the deep sea, the platforms have become a treasure chest of biodiversity. One of the symbols of environmental violence is now the bastion of environmental protection. Then, is it right to plead the very expensive cause of its removal? Or can such platforms rather find new meaning in the age of decarbonization and environmental sustainability?

These are the questions of Iron Island, and must be considered by those who will take up this challenge.
