About Competition

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 limit 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 not only for aesthetics but also for the technological aspects of toilets. 

“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
