The bathroom as perceived is prone to some rather radical extremes. Bad bathrooms can be really, really bad places where really, really bad things happen. On the other hand, a really nice bathroom can transcend its traditional purpose, inspiring its owner or occupant to spend out-sized amounts of time there, or to multi-task, moving decidedly "non-bathroom" activities to that very place (see Johnson, President Lyndon Baines). All of that said, centuries of designers, engineers and craftsmen have toiled to make these very private rooms a pleasant place to conduct one's most personal business. The folks at The Museum of Modern Design Atlanta have curated the 'WaterDream Exhibition' to showcase both the evolution and the state-of-the-art of the humble (and not so) bathroom. Catch it before September 17th or you won't be able to go anymore.
