The mega oil tanker ship can be seen as the perfect icon representing the geographic, economic and cultural history of the Arabic oil states.
By changing the function of the discarded mega oil tanker in a sustainable and functional way, the anchored mega ship can be kept as a true icon of the Arabic States in Southern Gulf region into the present and next era.
The Black Gold project is an answer to the contemporary search for true iconic buildings in the Southern Gulf region. The renovated and converted mega oil tanker laid at anchor represents the new future of the Arabic States in Southern Gulf region as a true present icon.
