SEAWEED INSULATION

Location: Oslo
Built Installation: 2011


The project suggests the use of dried seaweed and kelp as thermal insulation. Seaweed and kelp are natural renewable resources that are little used. If proven suitable the project could give rise to a new local industry engaging in growing, harvesting and drying seaweed and kelp for the production of a new sustainable building material.
