TOILET “The toilet is the fundamental zone of interaction - on the most intimate levelbetween humans and architecture. We can imagine buildings without almost any of the other elements of architecture but not without the toilet. But... the model it depends on - abundant water, sophisticated plumbing, largescale sewage systems - is increasingly unsustainable and unaffordable.” ADDED ATTRIBUTES The toilet represents the most intimate link between buildings and their occupants. Aside from the obvious sensors regarding water and sustainability, the toilet is an excellent element to monitor health. Toilets might be able to be used for early warning in a range of diseases. As always, how the data is used is what becomes interesting, a doctor will use ‘toilet data’ different to that of an insurance company for example.
