Bunker types from Paul Virilio's Bunker Archeology lino printed on Baumeister Magazine sheets. Virilo got a first glimpse on the sea as a child after 1945 because the Germans had blocked the beaches for the Atlantic Wall. In my childhood we used to bathe between these bunkers every summer. I grew up at Düren a completely destroyed city in WW2. We used to play in the woods between bunkers.

The Baumeister Magazine of the 1950s celebrates architectural concepts of rationalism that can only be distinguished from Albert Speer and Co in their pseudo-modesty. Even found my own school in it.

Both Westwall Bunkers and the Baumeister Magazine provide an interesting perspective on Speer’s ruins value theory (Ruinenwerttheorie) according to time and (out-)lasting.
