The Redwoods Whakarewarewa Forest Toilets, Rotorua

Where: Long Mile Road, Rotorua

Architect: Darryl Church Architecture

Artist: Artist: Kereama Taepa

Set in a historic and culturally significant park, this project responds to the very functional requirement of ablutions for visitors, but crosses into the realm of public art and sculpture. The shroud designs use cut corten steel, fusing the traditional Maori kowhaiwhai pattern with imagery of birds.

The designs focus on the fragility of New Zealand’s native bird species. They serve as a reminder to be careful when we go about our everyday activities as our actions affect the environment its flora and fauna.
