If you've ever been to the public toilets in Kawakawa in Northland you'll be familiar with the famous designer and artist Friedrich Hundertwasser. He was born in Austria but fell in love with NZ and moved to the area in the 70's. In 1998 as a gift to the area he designed the new facilites. He died in Feb 2000 and that building is the last structure in the Southern Hemisphere.
