This Friday Kevin will be speaking as part of the "Architect as Small-Scale Developer" workshop. Since tickets are only $110 it should be at least as entertaining as a trip to Disney Land.
Seriously, the workshop intends to give other architects and designers the guidelines to develop their own projects as an alternative to only working for clients. The other speakers have done some really nice projects and hopefully the workshop gives someone the much needed understanding they need to launch a project on their own.

A+D Museum “Carry On” Submittal: “Easy Rider”

by
Kevin 05/01/13


As the museum turns 10 years old this year, they asked about 40 firms to create custom carry ons for airline travel to coincide with their theme of "celebrating the journey and carrying on to the future".
We started with some sort of multi-functional utilitarian hat that would include things like an ipad projection, neck pillow, and headphones. This progressed into the idea of a portable anechoic chamber that isolates the wearer from the not so pleasant environment of the airline cabin. Then at some point it got fun and evolved into some sort of Evil Knievel meets Batman meets Daft Punk meets Keith Richards creation. The idea of the final product, which we named "Easy Rider", is to fly like a rock star even if your stuck in coach. You put on your Easy Rider pre-flight, load up on Xanax, and wake up at your new destination, thus avoiding all the hustle and bustle, cattle herding, crying baby, snoring neighbor, sneezed on fun that airline travel has become.

Some of the helmet features:
-Leather neck pillow that unrolls into a bad ass cape/blanket
-Programmable LED screen on front visor reads: "Be calm + carry on" as a play on the show's title and the fact that the helmet is a little intimidating to others
-Squirt pump that sprays out of each side of the helmet in case your adjacent passenger is bugging you
-Backlit pill container
-One way reflective visor can be seen out of but not into
-N20 switch which emits a darth vader like sound
-Functioning headphones
-LED lights indicating status of consciousness
