The Redwoods Toilets

Website

Set in a historic and culturally significant park, the project responds to the very functional requirement of ablutions for visitors but crosses into the realm of public art and sculpture. The random placement of the toilets echoes the random layout of the giant Californian redwood trees. The corten steel shrouds harmonise with the natural landscape palette. A collaboration with artist Kereama Taepa, produced the graphic patterning, which reminds of the fragility of birdlife and fauna with an indigenous art inspired framework.
