Alsop, Robert Adam and DSDHA among designers asked to design new public WCs

The RIBA has teamed up with BBC Radio 4’s Today programme to commission a range of architects to rethink the public toilet.

Will Alsop, Robert Adam, DSDHA, Eva Jiricna and FAT have all contributed new designs for public loos. A winner is set to be announced on Today tomorrow morning.

In a statement, the RIBA said: “In the Victorian and Edwardian eras, public toilet provision was a matter of civic pride; British public toilets were the best in the world. Local authorities would compete to create beautiful facilities which demonstrated the latest developments in sanitary engineering and architecture.”
