Turning a public toilet into a spa Favorite 



Jun 14 2007


Barcelona Spain

For three days, Ruben Santiago installed, without any official authorization, a hydro-massage shower in a public bathroom in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. The installation also made available to users bath gel, shampoo and towels that were regularly replaced.

The goal of the project was to add a functional element inside an already existing official device to instate an exercise of civil disobedience and infiltration. This infiltration, in spite of its desire to improve the public services given to the citizen, was illegally generated.
