Competition Introduction

Public toilets are a vital part of public health that fosters liveability in the city. Toilets are one of the most important public spaces.

Public toilets have become a design issue all over developed & developing countries. 'Toilet' is treated off-limits when it comes to architectural experimentation and innovation. This competition is an attempt to open the doors to discuss the type of space a designer would advise for public use. Artuminate launched this competition aiming to experiment with new, sustainable, and innovative solutions for toilet design.

“To talk about architecture without talking about toilets is to operate in denial of a whole array of sexual, psychological, and moral economics.”
-Beatriz Colomina and Mark Wigey
