In judging this restroom, visual design scored very high. The loo is a fully immersive experience by vision and sound. The toilets inside the science centre are like stepping into another world where you can do your business amid the sights and sounds of nature – without having to worry about bears. Overall, really well thought through,” one judge commented of the winning Regina toilet.

Sandy Baumgartner, CEO of the Saskatchewan Science Centre proclaimed, “Everything that we do at the Science Centre is filtered through the lens of Saskatchewan. The boreal forest is something that deeply connects the people of Saskatchewan. Using that imagery in a bathroom is fun, but also calls attention to the importance of protecting our natural resources. We also wanted visitors to learn more about Saskatchewan while dispelling the myth that the province is entirely flat prairie, while in fact 44% of the province is forested.”
