Are female urinals the next big thing in public bathroom design?

In breaking bathroom news: Dutch designers have come up with a 4-person female urinal. Molly blogged about porta potty alternatives for women after enduring Great Restroom Challenge that is the Bonaroo music festival.

Thanks to our art savvy audience, I can now name drop my way through any gallery opening like an A-plus art school grad.
