Bunker Ett Noll Fyra ( The Concrete Bunker )
|Author||Mikael Timm, Bruno Ehrs|
Used for the better part of the 20th century as a military installation and off-limits to the general public until 2007, the Bungenäs peninsula of Swedish Gotland is where Bunker 104 can be found. Architect Erik Gardell was tasked with transforming the abandoned structure into a subterranean summer home for a client. The result, beautifully captured by photographer Bruno Ehrs in this monograph, is a sublime example of post-industrial modernism. The house was a first step toward the Bungenäs area of today, which blossoms with fresh architectural visions actively re-envisioning the old military landscape. Includes a detailed text on the area’s history, plus an interview with Ehrs.
