Why waste a perfectly good, decommissioned oil rig, when you could transform it into a luxury hotel/resort? Morris Architects plans “to convert this space into exclusive, self-sufficient eco-friendly, high-end resort islands off the Gulf of Mexico, dubbing it our very own American Dubai.” Click here for first picture in gallery.

What do you do with 4,000 decommissioned oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico? With a deck of each oil rig at 20,000 square feet, that creates about 80 million square feet of usable space.
