Transparent Glass Public Toilet That Becomes Opaque When Occupied In Tokyo(Pics) by Explorers(m): 3:01pm On Aug 26, 2020
A Japanese designer has unveiled transparent public toilets with glass walls that become opaque when they are occupied.

Acclaimed architect Shigeru Ban came up with the idea which he said was intended as a practical way to allow users to check for cleanliness as well as whether the toilet was occupied or not.

The unique public toilets are located in Tokyo's Yoyogi Fukamachi Mini Park and the Haru-no-Ogawa Community Park.

The facilities at the Haru-no-Ogawa Community Park were designed with tinted green and blue glass to blend in with the surrounding foliage.

Meanwhile the Yoyogi Fukamachi Mini Park toilets, above, were given orange, pink and purple hues to compliment a nearby playground.

'There are two things we worry about when entering a public restroom, especially those located at a park,'

'The first is cleanliness, and the second is whether anyone is inside,' the architect explained.

'Using the latest technology, the exterior glass turns opaque when locked.'

This is innovative, It solved fundamental problems. The only problem we are wired mentally to try and solve in Nigeria is the problem of hunger. That is why Nigeria is Nigeria is light years behind the real world.
