-Why? How? What? 

Our occidental culture leads people to a peculiar relation with their own shit. Defecating is always a closed, invisible ritual. Here we have the chance to revert this prejudice, giving a totally open, yet sheltered, place to enjoy this pleasant act. When we finish, we bring it to the compost box, where it will slowly turn into healthy soil. This outhouse can also be your reading or drawing hideaway.
