I hate them.

At some of the older buildings on my campus the men's room has a very strange design to the urinals. They are sort of soup-bowl in shape (a gross analogy, I agree), there are no dividers between them, and unless you take steps to prevent it your equipment is fairly visible to anyone who walks in the door as you're using them. This seems odd to me. I think the buildings that they're in were built in the 70s or 80s... is there a design reason / philosophy behind the worst bathrooms I've ever used in my life?
As an aside, every toilet in the building is on a light sensor w/ no option for manual flush, leading to very gross and uncomfortable bathroom conditions overall. It boggles my mind that anyone ever thought any part of it was a good idea, so I was hoping the hive mind might be able to point me to whatever backwards school of thought conceived of this as a good idea.
