The photo collage on the exterior depicts the ‘battle of the sexes’: men and woman, dressed in pearls and diamonds, playfully sparing, waving around rolling pins, swords and boxing gloves. The round restroom, designed by Rem Koolhaas in 1996, is built out of milk glass, and Erwin Olaf’s photos make it a quirky location to relieve yourself. The structure has two entrances – one for men, one for women – so you can ‘go’ together. Isn’t that nice?
