Loo Café = Water Loop is an initiative to create a new model for public toilets in Hyderabad that celebrates water and connections between human and environmental systems. At the crossroads of function, education, and experiment, Loo Café = Water Loop builds
on the successful Loo Café concept by Ixora Corporate Services. The low-cost modular structure can be adapted for different sites.
As well as providing free public toilets maintained by revenue from the café, the new model showcases sustainable practices by
making them a visible, engaging and interactive part of the building’s design. In the face of climate change and increasing water stress,
Loo Café = Water Loop explores alternative systems for ecological sanitation that emphasise circularity, and foregrounds interconnections between humans and the environment, shit and the food chain, technology and community. A pilot Loo Café = Water Loop will be built
in Hyderabad in Spring 2020.
Loo Café = Water Loop is a collaboration between curators Jane Withers Studio, Anupama Kundoo Architects and Ixora Corporate Services, commissioned by and created in collaboration with the British Council and supported by the Government of Telangana.
