Walkin Shower with no door

I'm interested in building a walkin type shower out of tile and thought to myself, why do I need a door? They are impossible to keep clean. Does anybody have any ideas on how to design something like this so the water stays in the shower? I figure an L shape would work pretty good.

Anybody done this?

There are a few ways if you have enough space. Take a look at
This is a glass block design page, but they show a lot of showers that are shaped so they dont require doors. Its really just a matter of having enough space.

You can build them out of tile also, and a tiled floor, you will have to constrct a shower pan from scratch with a liner and curb, have the shower spray away from the opening and have a alot of room.

Key West Joan - If you're in Key West why shower at all? I lived there for 4 years and every afternoon around 2 God provided a free one outside.
