Thus, to do away with this public washroom phobia of people, The Tokyo Toilet Project has been launched by a non-profit organisation, which will be renovating 17 public toilets in one of the busiest commercial areas of Tokyo, i.e., Shibuya's public parks.
Each cubicle is made from a special coloured "smart glass" which turns opaque when it is occupied, but when it is empty it is completely transparent.
Therefore, its incredibly important to keep in mind to secure the door lock, which is located well below the handle, failure to which your private affair becomes a public matter.
The Pritzker Prize-winning architect designed the toilets with two key points in mind - cleanliness, and security.
"There are two things we worry about when entering a public restroom, especially those located at a park", Ban explained on the project's website. The foundation added that the latest technology turns the cubicles' glass outer walls opaque after the door is locked. The goal is to make people feel comfortable when they use these public toilets, and foster a spirit of hospitality for the next person.
As a bonus, the bathrooms also put on quite the show: "At night, the facility lights up the park like a handsome lantern".
Glass exterior reveals the facility is empty, making it safe for use at night.
Each facility also comprises three separate cubicles, a male, female and accessible toilet which are divided by mirrored walls. The bathrooms are configured so that voltage must be applied to make the glass transparent, then when someone locks the door, the electrical supply is cut, and it goes back to its default opaque state.
The new facilities have replaced two older public toilets near the large Yoyogi Park in Shibuya.
In addition to Ban's installation, the Toilet Project has commissioned 15 other creators to build innovative fresh designs for public washrooms around the city.
Novelty aside, the structure stated there was very important useful factors to consider behind the uncommon toilets, which it compared to a "curious piece of playground equipment".
