#3 MINTURN MINING TOILET
Design: The Town of Minturn, LaN Architecture - Monika Wittig, LGM 3d Studios and Noble Welding
Location: Minturn, Colorado, USA
The tiny town of Minturn, Colorado, two hours west of Denver, is fresh on the list for its unique fabricated and functional construction of toilets created using 3D-technology. The town was founded in 1904 and carries a rich history in mining.
The construction of the toilets are meant to represent an entrance to a Rocky Mountain mine. Carved wood ripples, steel butterflies and copper-coloured walls make for an interesting visit. The toilets cost $100,000 to build and the town have just won $2,500 in cleaning supplies for their champion loo.
Minturn design director, Janet Hawkinson said: ‘Our public restrooms prove how great it is to combine art, architecture and creativity. It changes moods, places and people.’
