a fun ,clean , sustainable , water saving . cost effective, duplicable  solution for a public toilet in a rural tea town

when i think of designing a public toilet in a tea town in china which is under budget , i would think of a fun one, of course , it shall be very clean, and sustainable etc.

my approach is starting with my first instinct, and also start something that is not realizable at the big urban city, but it is totally ok and low cost to do in the rural area.

so the “maofang” hits me, the most orginal version of toilet in the old time, that people use the thatch/couchgrass to build one. (actually many south asia resorts are still using this concept).

and then i apply a tea leaf for the entrance, it is such a fun one, because then a group of people cann’t rush in at the same time. remind your childhood, and relax you.

use a high ceiling and not full close all the wall, it is for the ventilation and being a lighting box at night.
