This is a school project, based on a brief from a company called Protia.
Their reasearch is converting natural gas into liquid fuel, and needed to upscale their experiments. So the assignment where to construct a fully functional laboratory inside two converted freightcontainers. It had to contain a complete laboratory, including three gas reactors, cooling and distilling units, generators and compressors. An office space aswell as an area for meeting with investors, collaboratory companies and politicians.
Because winter in Norway is long, cold and dark we wanted the exterior of the lab to be visible at night. Therefor we played alot with lights. The exterior is based on a picture taken with a electron microscope of the ceramic structure of the reactor core walls. The use of these core walls is the main idea behind Protias experimental research. The tiles represent a abstract shape inspired from the
electron microscopic pictures.
This project was a collaboration between me and two others, over a six week time.
The other two was Anders Lilleby and Wilhelm G. Teisner.
