Curious Contraption: Designer Restroom

"Seven years ago, the City Council of Bainbridge Island, Washington, set out to build a public restroom for downtown Waterfront Park so visitors would no longer have to use portable toilets."

No big deal, so far. However....

"The toilets are still there, following council battles over million-dollar proposals such as a glass-tiled structure dug into a hillside, a combination restroom and scenic viewing area, and a design that anticipated $45,000 just for artwork. "

...Would you want to go sight seeing in a public restroom!

"In May the council gave the public works director some money and ordered him to 'just (build) a bathroom.'"

What a 'relief'!
