Lonely Planet guide compiles stunning toilets of the world
LONELY PLANET has published a pictorial guide of the world’s most amazing toilets.
Titled “Toilets: A Spotter’s Guide”, the book is a compilation of loos with a view and outhouses with unique architectural design. Each photo is accompanied with a description of the featured location.
Some of the toilets included in the list is an eco-toilet in Australia, a lone outhouse in the mountains of Norway, a Helmut Jahn-designed men’s room in a Berlin Sony Centre, and even a suction toilet in space.
In the book’s introduction, a passage reads, “Toilets so often transcend their primary function of being a convenience to become a work of art in their own right, or to make a cultural statement about the priorities, traditions and values of the venues, locations and communities they serve.”
More than 100 toilets are featured in the book, from Antarctica to Zambia. Here are a few that were featured in the guide:
