This Camera-Shaped Building Isn’t Quite What You’d Expect It To Be

Every so often, something comes across our desks that makes us do a bit of a double-take. This was one of those moments.

What you see above is a building shaped like a compact camera. What is the building used for? That’s where it gets interesting. It’s not a camera store or an electronics repair shop, it’s a public restroom… seriously.

Located in Chongqing, China along Yuzhou Road, this building nails all the major details of a camera: from the shape, to the obvious lens in the front, to the shutter-button up-top (the last of those provides function in the form of a vent).

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen bathroom related objects and photography come together, but that doesn’t quite diminish its level of strangeness.

While there’s no confirmation on why this public restroom was made to look like a digital camera, people have gathered that it’s likely due to the city’s location, known for having a large electronics market. Then again, if we’re being honest, going to the restroom in a camera doesn’t exactly scream ‘homage to electronics.’

Take a look at the video above to see it in a bit better detail (but thankfully not too much). The only question remaining now is: do you have to go f/1 or f/2?
