Photo Challenge #370

When Westport Library officials and architects “reimagined” the riverfront building, bathrooms were probably at the bottom of their list.

But the place is filled with clever ideas: visual puns, subtle nods to the logo, and plenty of book-related touches.

You’ve probably missed most of them, like the words etched into seemingly random designs on the top floor balcony (visible from the Trefz Forum). Or the “three dots” mirroring the logo at the big clock, and on the Forum’s round lights.

Or the slender horizontal shapes, meant to evoke book spines. They’re all over the place — inside and out.

Including the bathrooms.

Last week’s Photo Challenge featured a shot from the main floor men’s room. I took the image (click here to see). I assume the women’s room looks the same (minus the urinals).

Charlie Colasurdo, Ralph Balducci, Phil Kann, Amy Schneider, Suzy Hooper, Paul Cahill, Rob Haroun and Abby Tolan all correctly identified “bathroom.”  Andrew Colabella and Gina Ryan got the library right, but not the precise location.

There’s something fishy about this week’s challenge. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
