… The London Design Festival
Amongst the delights of the London Design Festival lies a small exhibition called The Lives of Others by the Helen Hamlyn Centre at the Royal College of Art. Here you will find user-centred research into the design of libraries, patient safety, care homes and… public toilets.
My project Out of Order shows the first year of work where I interviewed 80+ members of the public of all ages about needing, finding and using public toilets, and then spoke with nearly 20 local authorities, architects, private providers and the police. The exhibition shows the research process and allows you to have your say by writing answers to toilet-related questions on the loo rolls – and no potty mouth, I have to read these later!
The Lives of Others is open until Thursday 7th October at the Royal College of Art (free admission)
