bunker

For the past three decades, essayist and art critic Paul Virilio has been studying and photographing the approximately 1,500 abandoned bunkers that are the remnants of the World War II  “Atlantic Wall,” built by the Germans in anticipation of an Allied landing on the coast of France. Virilio’s photographs of these forbidding, intriguing fortifications are in his book Bunker Archaeology, just returned to print by the Princeton Architectural Press.
