Tokyo Public Toilets 2003

A microarchitecture in its own right. To be found round all public parks or playgrounds. All styles can be found, from simple prefabricated shed to some postmodern constructions.

Are there any architects famous for their toilet houses?

Pay a visit to Kinuta (Setagaya) or Ueno Park for an overview of samples.
