    Mobile and scaleable researchlab.
  • 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.
  • The laboratory placed on a well suited site, at night time. Showing off the exterior, hopefullt drawing attention.
  • An overview of the basic layout inside the containers.
  • This corner of the laboratory is ment to be the meeting space inside the office section. Along the wall we have put opp a lot of diffrent but important information about Protia as a company, and about their technology.
  • This is the view from the office space, into the reactor room and laboratory. Between the office space and the laboratory, there is a protective plexiglass wall. To protect in case of an malfuntion in the piping containing cooling liquid under preassure, aswell as the destilation piping which is also under preassure.
