Public WC Somewhere in Prague



Public WC Somewhere in Prague.

A search for the image on one of those image search engines turns up several hits, but none of the links for the image offered an explanation of the who/where/when/why.

So unless someone on this board plays Sherlock and can find the original source which I presume would offer up an explanation, all there is the image and a Prague location.

CNN has a feature story + slide show (today) of public urinals in Japan that showed some very creative architectural design elements (externally of the bldg). Quite literally they were way above the boring mundane insipid colorless architecture that dominates this world of ours. So I decided to see where else in the world architects put their creative juices to work in their design of WCs.

The embedded pix was a statement IMO.

Further research shows that it is located in the Palladium Shopping Center in the city of Prague (has its own website [in English] and looks like an upscale mall). But I could find nothing about the architects who designed this, and of course their inspiration, at least as far as they were concerned. Nor could I find any media articles on the public's take on the environs, but that may be that all the articles are in the Czech language.

Here's an expanded view of the location.

Finally I would be most interested in the gender of the design team. There certainly is a story waiting to be told about this over and above its utilitarian function. The gender, and the poses of the models are most certainly not accidental; there is art at work here.
