Tirpitz bunker / BIG architects

A 2.800m2 “invisible museum” to be created at a historic German WWII bunker in Denmark, by BIG architects

Commissioned by Museum Center Blåvand the new experimental cultural complex will be embedded into the dune landscape and integrate a bunker museum, an amber museum, a “histolarium” and a special exhibitions gallery within a single structure.

 

Upon arrival, visitors will first see the bunker until they approach through the heath-lined pathways and find the walls cut into the dunes from all sides and descend to meet in a central clearing. The courtyard allows access into the four underground gallery spaces that have an abundance of daylight even though they are literally carved into the sand.
