The exhibition critically reassesses sanitation infrastructure in the context of global freshwater shortages which have become a reality in Europe. Sanitation infrastructure is also connected with the possibility of restoring the nutrient cycle in food production.
As a low-density solution, the exhibition presents a contemporary dry toilet, the huussi, which is still a typical sanitation solution in remote locations and summer cottages in Finland.
By questioning the so far indisputable position of the current water-based sanitation system, the exhibition aims to inspire architects to start looking for alternative solutions, also at the urban scale, to better serve the world we inhabit today.
