As the National Tourism Administration of China calls for a “toilet revolution,” the public toilet construction in a Chinese tourist area is witnessing an unprecedented change. Recently, WinSun Architecture and Technology Co., Ltd has been actively building various green houses including environmentally friendly public toilets for the Suzhou Yangshan Scenic Area by using their advanced 3D printing methods.
They’re determined to change the embarrassing situation where the public toilets are strangely unmatched with the city’s overall scenery. WinSun’s 3D printed public toilets for the Yangshan Scenic Area are inspired by mother nature. For example, the canopies between the public toilets are all elaborately designed from ginkgo leaves in the botanical garden, harmoniously adapted to the environment in which it is located.
All they need is a drawing, a computer and a printer to create the houses with a complete set of functions. As for the construction process, they only need a crane and three workers to build the houses, just like piling up blocks without releasing any waste or dust. What’s amazing is that even the drainage system in the scenic area is 3D printed.
WinSun is a high-tech enterprise who is engaged in the research and development of the new materials for construction. WinSun has been employing 3D printing methods in many city infrastructure constructions including water supply and drainage systems, gardens and parks, environmental health and underground public and ancillary facilities for many years. Its technology is expected to revolutionize construction, estate and urban design, and even more industries in the future.
We are curious about the landscape of the Yangzhan scenic area after it is completely constructed. It seems that a “toilet revolution” may lead to several other revolutions at the same time, which is exactly the charm of 3D printing technology – it connects us together and creates a better city for all of us.
