Pee Stall for one, Gent, Belgium

Many years ago, to solve the problem of drunken men peeing all over the streets of Gent, the city installed enclosed concrete troughs for the men to expel their urine into. However, due to their enclosed nature, the pee rooms smelled awful. Solution: make them open aired, offer a delightful view of the city, and still give a young man the privacy he craves. The urinals are situated in a curved alcove so all a passerby can see is a man’s covered rear end as he relieves himself and takes in the historic sites. Sorry ladies, apparently there are no pee rooms for you...yet.
