Who'll win the crown for designing Kenilworth's new throne?

David Teeland: Kenilworth Rest. "The form captures the tectonics of surrounding mountains and hills-cape. The timber and steel sheet materials evoke the history and character of rural buildings as well as invoking a prehistoric, indigenous presence. The tough imposing form presents a sense of mystery and intrigue. The users' journey is rewarded once inside the facility with a central shaft of light within the tapered internal space that is defined by wall murals or frescoes that bring to mind a 'neo classical' ambience. The mound and form have a conspicuous and robust presence both from the road and against the forest backdrop and ground plane. The simple pyramid like sculptural shape sits on a grass mound that has distinctive mown 'ceremonial' pattern that distinguishes it from the grass ground plane context."

It's a who's who of poo with some stunning Kenilworth toilet designs
