This is a public toilet in a so called 'environmental' park in Oslo. What I particularly liked about this image/building is that it reflects the surrounding environment making it blend in. Probably more by coincidence than anything else, if one looks closely at the reflection it seems as if the image of the trees behind the toilet are not interrupted by the toilet at all…as if it is almost transparent – both the canopy (on the right reflection) and the tree trunk (bough) on the left reflection, and the ground, are nearly consistent with what the eye imagines might be behind the building. It renders it almost transparent and invisible. Now that is environmentally friendly.
