Rotorua’s public toilets in The Redwoods forest receive international recognition for the structures’ designer Darryl Church Architecture.
The Rotorua-based business is selected as one of six finalists in the 2014 World Architecture News (WAN) Small Spaces Awards, won by a Vietnamese architectural firm.
The toilets are the result of a collaborative partnership between Rotorua Lakes Council, Darryl Church, iwi and screen artist Kereama Taepa. The cubicles were conceived as individual cylinders of corten steel, integrated with elements of storytelling and Māori art.
