Anybody Want to Live in an Apartment Inside an Oil Tanker?

New, 11 comments

Chances are, your first thought when you see an oil tanker is not "I would like to live in there." But, then again, you are not Amsterdam architect Chris Collaris, who wants to convert discarded mega oil tankers to "accommodate a serious village area." The idea brings a whole new meaning to the phrase waterfront development, as the tanker village would actually sit in the water. If nothing else, an oil tanker village will make a great setting for some future murder mystery TV shows.
