A Roman Architect with a passion for restroom design

Archi-nerd

I would like to draw your attention to the most ridiculous film I have come across. A Roman Architect timetravels in modern Japan in an attempt to push the envelope on the design of sanitary facilities. This is not a joke, but an actual, 100% real film. See below:

I hope they tackle the fascinating concept of license reciprocity through time travel.

Looks like someone was pigeonholed into doing WC layouts straight out of the collegium guild.

Oooh this reminds me of the previous thread about films featuring architects: Inception, Indecent Proposal, Death Wish, Town & Country, The Fountainhead, Belly of an Architect, IT Part 2 ...

Regarding Inception, someone please enlighten me, when did you ever learn how to create a maze in arch. school? I wonder where that came from.. The closest thing I could think of was a waterproofing labyrinth that you would have to do intricate flashing details, but i bet you don't learn this in school..

^ The Flashing is definitely NOT a creative movie about architectural visions. Or so I've heard.

I just watched 'Father of the Bride' by Andy Garcia and Gloria Esteban, where the father of the bride (Andy Garcia) went on and on about how he started from nothing, went through architecture school bussing tables , then became an owner of the arch firm.  When he meets the groom-to-be, he isn't happy that his future son-in-law would work in non-profit and wont' be making enough money to support his daughter...that was funny coming from an architect.

Movies tend to assign architectural jobs to upper middle class characters ... much like a more creative lawyer or doctor.

They also show most architects being tortured souls with a passion for creativity and a really, really nice house.

Oh, is this Thermae Romae? There is also an anime and a manga. The manga is quite beautifully drawn and between chapters has a lot of cool bonus material about roman bathhouse culture and architecture. I don't know if there's an English version or not, I don't remeber it being incredibly popular since it is.....about as niche as it gets. BIlingual Bonuses occur for those of you that know Latin, though ; )
