Mobile Research Centre Design in Norway

The Arctic research center is a mobile structure on hydraulic legs, which allows for the 3 main sections to dismantle and reorganize themselves accordingly. The work and living quarters are on skis pulled along by snow tractors and snowmobiles. The sides and part of the roof are covered in a carbon fibre and Silicium lattice frame, which traps light energy using photovoltaic glass panels.

Electric current is forced through the electrical resistance wire embedded within the carbon fibre façade lattice frame, creating heat energy then cooling it for an icy surface to from within the frame allowing snow to build up that acts as insulation to the center similar to an igloo.
