Flushing fundraiser - Bar-B-Loo
On one day of the year, the humble and normally much hidden toilet comes out of the small room to be celebrated. 19 November was declared 'World Toilet Day' in 2001 by 17 toilet associations around the world and has a variety of aims encompassing everything from more toilets to cleaner toilets, and better provision for special groups (such as those with disabilities and parents with babies).
The GHD team was inspired by the latest International World Toilet Day Fundraiser and created a special toilet of their own - The Bar-B-Loo. There ain’t no Que, just a loo - liberally coated in Resene Super Gloss Enamel Black. The BBQ inspired design emerged from the similarities of the curved toilet bowl, and the curves of a portable BBQ. Authentic BBQ materials and fixtures were sourced and custom fabricated to suit the unique shapes present.This was exhibited along with other architecturally designed and decorated toilets and sold to the highest bidder to raise awareness and money for people living in poverty without basic sanitation.
The Woods Bagot team also got inspired and used Resene Wild Thing (bright yellow gold) on the inside of their toilet!
It just goes to show that fundraising for an important cause can be plenty of fun too.
