Abstract`A Public Toilet –a Window to Values and Wellbeing of Society´ is a study of public toilets in the context of an indoor public space. The partner of the process is the Helsinki City Library. The topic is explored from various perspectives to get a holistic understanding of everything that should be considered in public toilet planning and how the created solutions influence the user experience. The study concentrates on the new Central Library, which scheduled to be built in 2017. It describes the often so neglected topic with fresh perspectives and can be used as a planning phase guideline and inspiration to other public buildings as well.
