Public Toilets (eng) ENG - The public toilet in the city park of Uster has a complex facade of 295 folded aluminumstrips. The depth of the folding and the slightly different colors of each strip generate a shimmering facade that changes depending on sun angle and the observers' perspective. Each strip is lasercut and handfolded. The strips are clipped and bolted onto 18 lasercut aluminum sheets that are mounted to the facade of the prefab module "City" by Ekuch.
