SWAZILAND : Emakhuzweni General Store

Nestled in a gum tree grove, this toilet is located behind the village general store. During the monsoons, the red clay sand splashes up, creating a rich two-tone exterior. The panel propped against the entrance is typical of outhouse doors throughout southern Africa. (more…)  Read More →

CANADA : pee tree

No Canadian campsite would be complete without its own pee tree. Usually found wherever a makeshift campsite is set up, pee trees can also occur in official campgrounds when the latrines are an uncomfortable distance away.

Using the pee tree promotes the theory behind camping: to exist without the modern conveniences we take for granted in an effort to come closer to nature. (more…)  Read More →

JAPAN : Tokyo

This is arguably the most moving toilet experience a woman can have. Once the user is comfortably seated, the gargantuan floor-to-ceiling head slowly starts advancing.

A dizzying 5900 meters above sea level at its crater, this imposing volcano straddles the border between Bolivia and Chile. The air at the short stone toilet below is so thin that its users are advised not to overexert themselves to avoid altitude sickness. The toilet serves the nearby Thermas de Polques hot springs.

USA: CBGB, Manhattan

Stickers from every punk and underground rock band that ever played this venue plaster the walls, tables and washrooms of this legendary bar. The toilet is mounted like a throne on a raised brick pedestal in a massive private stall. CBGB was the haunt of the 1970s New York punk scene and gradually made the transition to rock.
