Public Toilet Design: From Hotels, Bars, Restaurants, Civic Buildings and Businesses Worldwide

by Cristina del Valle Schuster

Firefly Books, 2005
ISBN 1554071194
softcover, 286pp


"A unique photographic compilation of the most outstanding projects in this particular field of architecture. Be it a stadium, airport, bar, restaurant, bank or mall, a truly well-designed toilet is a welcome place of rest and utility. And in the case of public toilets in parks and streets and commuting centres, a clean and aesthetically pleasant public toilet leaves the user with a positive opinion of the city as a whole. For much of the 20th century, "cheap and durable" was the rule. That trend is changing, as shown by the 80 designs in this book in such diverse places as Boston, London, Rome, Auckland, Sao Paulo, Toronto, Istanbul and Amsterdam. Public Toilet Design is for architects, designers, public administrators, restaurant owners and other proprietors of publicly used space."
