World War II Bunker Cut In Half To Make Artful War Memorial

A World War II bunker near the town of Culemborg in the Netherlands was cut in half and transformed into an artful war memorial. Bunker 599, originally built in 1940, was meant to hold up to 13 soldiers during bombing raids. It was one of many small cogs in the New Dutch Waterline, an expansive series of water-based defenses that dates back to 1815.

But with the help of Dutch studios RAAAF and Atelier de Lyon, the bunker has been split down the middle to create a unique and artful war memorial.
