The Rjukan town cabin is built by 22 architecture students from NTNU, directed by the student group Rallar Arkitekter. The project is a pavillion built to be a new and unique meeting spot for the people of Rjukan. The pavillion is open 24/7, and is also containing an exhibition with photos from Rjukan in the past and the present. The cabin was built in two weeks, while the planning lasted over 10 months. The six architecture students in Rallar Arkitekter met the planning authorities in Rjukan in September 2012, to discuss a possible project. The municipality were willing to finance the project, while planning and building were to be done by the students. The task was open, and the students themselves had to decide what to build. The final goal for the project, was to give the people a new meeting spot which represented something new and challenging to the historical town.
