The Chiton and The Slowcoaster


  1. Both are geared towards the protection of children and adults from unsafe air possibly contaminated from the effects of a pandemic or epidemic such as the one we are in.

  2. The former (the CHITON) is an individual boy wear that can be use in three stage

    • The first is a headwear that is a laminate safe glass and is airtight to the face with a “rubber” that is a filter. It also has access to air tube.

    • The second (the Chiton) is he storage device and the partial top body cover (open at the hip) for protection were the mask full effect.

    • The third is a full body enclosure design for anyone, but, for those children and adults with respiratory immunodeficient illnesses.

  3. The latter (The SLOWCOASTER/ slow roller coaster) is the slow amusement ride aimed for urban renewal and economic recovery of Sparks Street. It is largely and architectural and structural intervention that provides a safe enclosed space for sky high city tours/ viewing.
