Room With a View

I recently forewent free wine and networking so I could explore the terraces of Roy Harrover's Memphis College of Art.

Terraces of Memphis College of Art

I discovered that, like the studios, the bathrooms on the top floor opened directly to the outside terrace.

Bathroom with a View, Part II

See?

Usually a bathroom that opens directly to the elements is a problem, of abuse and neglect.

But on the top floor of the MCA, open to nature but controlled access to the public, it's clean. And it's cool. At least I think it's cool.

Leaving the door open will probably get you expelled, but there is the view.

I wonder if Harrover and Mann also designed Christ Methodist? The original architecture in the main sanctuary and central courtyard uses some similar elements to the College of Art.
