Photographer's Note

New Zealand has fantastic public toilets. There are many of them, everywhere, they are spotlessly clean and free. But also they often beautiful.
The most photographed toilet in New Zealand" is in the town of Kawakawa, on the way to Paihia.
Reclusive Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser designed this decorative toilet block a year before he died in 2000, aged 71. He had lived in Kawakawa, in the Bay of Islands, for the last 25 years of his life. Made entirely from recycled materials (the bricks come from a former Bank of New Zealand), the roof features vegetation replanted after construction. Warning: Members of the opposite sex are allowed to come into inspecting each interior after shouting loudly – and waiting for an all-clear.

Unfortunately, I saw this famous toilet only from the bus. I made a picture but it is too unsharp to show here. The bus didn't stop so I could not use it :).

This is the public toilet in Kaikoura. on the East Coast of NZ.
