Public Toilet Design presents a selection of 130 very diverse public toilet designs - 50 of them installed over the last two years - in which toilets enjoy special status as a vehicle for various artistic and cultural expressions, corporate values and the needs of different social groups. The book covers: History and evolution of the public toilet. Places of leisure: e.g., restaurants, bars, clubs, malls, gyms, theatres, museums, stadiums. Commuting spaces: e.g., airports, railway stations, boats, rest areas. Public residences: e.g., hotels, spas, geriatric residences. Working Environments: e.g., banks, offices, public administrations. Materials and accessories used. Ergonomics: adaptations for users, including the elderly, handicapped, nappy-changing stations. Locations from around the world are featured, including restaurants, bars, malls, schools, museums, hotels, gyms, cinemas, boutiques, businesses, stadiums, airports, railway stations, street lavatories and park toilets.
Among the 50 new designs - and don't miss the transparent 'Don't Miss a Sec' sidewalk toilet - are the following: Central Library Rotterdam, The Netherlands; SIDE Hotel, Hamburg, Germany; Rain Restaurant, Toronto, Canada; Roman Tabernae at the Trajan's Forum, Rome; Rizhao Public Bathroom, Rizhao, China; Mid-City Gym, New York City; Public Toilets at the Port of Dubrovnik, Croatia; Yoga Deva, Gilbert, Arizona; Kros Urinal, London, UK; Restrooms of the New Hotel, Athens, Greece. More than 600 full-colour photographs illustrate the designs in detail and each project is accompanied by descriptive text in five languages. Plans and detailed descriptions show the transformation of the public toilet during its planning, development and construction stages. Designers, architects, students and the purely inquisitive will find Public Toilet Design fascinating and informative.
