The Shelter Project
The House That George Built
O2 Air Station - 2003
Dion LaurentThe Bush Administration urged us all to prepare a plastic sheeting and duct tape room in our house � so I did. It evolved to it�s current form and now is The O2 Service Station, The House that George Built.
Theoretically, it�s a self-contained, self-sustaining bio-environment, a one room gas station supplied air via ducts from the oxygen-generating cubed terrarium. A small exhaust fan in the room vents out cool and heavy CO2 to the terrarium, and the A/C cools the warm humid oxygenated air of the terrarium to the room. In front, the Air Gas Pump, and Air Phone, both supply fresh filtered Oxygen via the terrarium concept, the Air Gas Pump with an electric fan and gas mask delivery system. It�s essentially a one-stop bio/chem attack or ozone action day pit stop shop for fresh air and water. Or rather, on a beautiful day when all the world is at peace, it�s just a paradise, a self-contained, self sustaining bio-environment, Earth.
