You know you’re in Switzerland when even the public toilets look like they belong in a design showroom. In Uster, architects Gramazio & Kohler slapped 295 bright green, laser-cut, folded aluminum strips onto a prefab restroom in a city park. The depth of the folds and the various shades of green make the facade shimmer–an effect that changes with the angle of the sun and the observer’s perspective. Remember: This is where you go after several glasses of Feldschlösschen.
