Public Toilets in New Zealand Resemble Sea CreaturesStreet Art // Tuesday, 14 Aug 2012
In Wellington, New Zealand on the waterfront, architects from Studio Pacific have created public toilets resembling large headless sea creatures or maybe even dinosaurs. The “toilet sculptures” were designed to reflect the waterfront’s shipping history and to evoke “the crusty saltiness of the sea” in the harbor nearby. They have red steel armor plates and their long neck design created natural ventilation. An ambitious project considering each one of these structures contains only one bathroom.
