Unexpected Encounters with Architecture

The Shape of Texas, Volume 20, Episode 4

Located along the north shore of Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Miro Rivera Architects’ Trail Restroom is the result of a long-standing partnership between the non-profit Trail Foundation and the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department. With the entire A/E team donating their services, the construction process exemplified the unique nature of the project. The architects printed a full-sized plan and laid it out themselves on the site. The steel fabricator then erected all 49 panels in one day for a captivating work of brutal simplicity.
