This Dutch Bunker Survived Wars, But Not A Team Of Architects

Don't get too sad over this 195-year-old bunker being sliced in half. There are 700 other bunkers nearby which form the New Dutch Waterline that protected cities between 1815-1940. Now it's an area for watery playtime.

Architects cut the bunker in half and plonked a footpath down the middle, which turns into a jetty when it reaches the shoreline. I like how they didn't spoil the feeling of the bunker too much - it's not been modernised like so many old buildings and barely spoils the surrounding landscape. Hopefully the nearby residents can get a lot of use out of it. [Designboom]
