A modular system of public restrooms that have the ability to blend into varied backdrops of Indian cities in an elegant way.

The idea was to provide a dry sanitation system that is affordable, sustainable, has longer life expectancy and is more cost effective over its lifetime compared to other systems. Key components of the dry sanitation system is that it is a dry or waterless sanitation system. It is a permanent installation and is a self-contained, all in one unit. It has uses no chemicals and has zero environmental impact. The system has a sealed unit that captures and treats waste through the natural processes of dehydration and evaporation with no contact or contamination of the waste to either the immediate or surrounding environment. It requires no electricity or power source to function, it utilizes wind and sun. Also, it requires minimum maintenance and servicing, with minimal associated cleaning costs which are also necessary for more conventional and traditional systems.
