Could you tell me where the toilet is?

Birgit Dietz

Signage is a great challenge. Guiding people in a clear and understandable way in places they don’t know is a science in itself.

We would like to regularly share some unique samples of toilet doors from all over the world. Which one is for men and which for women? Do they make any sense to you? We hope they at least make you smile!

Toilet signs seen in our home town Bamberg, Germany.

If you would like to extend our collection and have a photo of your own, please send it to us. Thanks! BIfadA-Team

Workshop "Colour and light in architecture" at the Bavarian Institute of Architecture in Bamberg

Birgit Dietz

To make an environment as safe and manageable as possible, not just family members but also architects and planners need to learn to see the world through the eyes of the people living there. Anyone can change their perspective. They only need to be willing to use a degree of empathy to see, hear and feel the world as others do. If they can do this successfully, they will be better able to recognize and grasp the demands everyday life can make. That is why the participants of the workshop “colour and light in architecture” held at the Bavarian Institute of Architecture for the elderly and cognitively impaired in Bamberg, have tested a pair of glasses simulating an eye cataract while walking on differently coloured surfaces.
