photo du jour 12.12.2007


We received this image from Andrew Maynard Architects after our post earlier this week on their recent project – the Tattoo House – and I couldn’t help but throw it up here. Apparently this is all the ‘stuff’ that had to be thrown behind the yard’s walls so that photographer Peter Bennetts could get clear + unobstructed shots [and you thought those ninjas just didn’t own any furniture…].

Great stuff – thanks Cara!

Toilet House



Being built by Sim Jae-duck, the chairman of the World Toilet Association General Assembly [apparently such an organization exists], the toilet house is set to open on November 11th [yes – they’re actually building this thing]. The house is actually named Haewoojae – which means ‘a place of sanctuary where one can solve one’s worries’ in Korean. I mean, that’s where I solve all my worries, and think about what I’m going to write for MNP

Located in Suweon, 40 km south of Seoul, the 419 square meter 2 bedroom – 2 guestroom home comes complete with 3 deluxe state-of-the-art toilets [they’re so advanced they poop for you] – and will be ready for visitors soon if your travels take you to South Korea in the future.

Now I don’t know about South Korea, but if this was built in the U.S. you’d have the party for the opening of the house, and around 12:45 your buddy from college who had one-to-many shots of  Patrón [the only tequila endorsed by MNP] would go up onto the roof and pee all over that grassy slope. But could you blame him?

Maybe they should hook up with Andrew Maynard for their next building…
