Description Change this

The dry toilet project was the result of a six-month stay in Caracas, during which time Liyat Esakov and Marjetica Potrč researched the informal city under the auspices of the Caracas Case Project. A dry, ecologically safe toilet was built on the upper part of La Vega barrio, a district in the city without access to the municipal water grid. The project attempts to rethink the relationship between infrastructure and architecture in real-life urban practice in a city where about half the population receives water from municipal authorities no more than two days a week.

The project was supported by La Vega community in Caracas, Caracas Case Project and Federal Cultural Foundation of Germany and Ministry of Environment Venezuela.
