About Petrocultures 2022: Transformations

We live in turbulent times, and the role of petroleum is at the heart of global and local political debate about how we should rebuild after COVID-19 and address our worsening crises of climate and international stability. A transition to a world without oil as its primary source of fuel and energy is vital if we are to reach the climate targets set by the Paris Agreement, but the pathway, feasibility, and timing of such an unprecedented transition is still hotly debated. We know that oil will come to an end, but whether its closing date is set by emptied reservoirs, greener alternatives, or political decisions, is still to be determined. Petrocultures2022 invites participants to engage critically in the debate and the transition to alternatives.

THE SPATIAL GHOSTS OF OIL: ENVISIONING POST-PETROLEUM NORTH SEA FUTURES

Chair: Nancy Couling
Research, Theory and Design studio: Explorations in Ocean Space
  • Grids, Gods & Giants-Urbanisation of the North Sea. This paper analyses the legislative structures, mythologies and physical artefacts of petroleum that have colonised the North Sea and created strange new geographic places far offshore, transforming the sea into a site of “extended urbanisation” (Brenner & Schmid). Examples of design explorations from architecture students challenging ocean literacy –what we know and can imagine, support the paper.
