The heating system works just like that is used in underfloor heating system, all electrical heated wires are installed behind those tiles.

Lauren E. Lee explains that this project is aimed to discuss the taboo that has shaped women’s perception where menstruation cycle and its problems should be hidden from public realm. Most public spaces don’t really consider their design to meet these women’s recurring needs. By placing these walls in the ladies’ room, it will become the place of shared suffering, empathy, and the performance of femininity.
