A WWII bunker becomes a museum along Denmark’s coast

Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), in partnership with Varde Museums and Tinker Imagineers, has transformed and expanded a historic German World War II bunker into a 2,800-sm (30,138-sf) cultural complex called TIRPITZ, embedded into the protected shoreline of Blåvand along Denmark’s western coast.

The facility, which opened earlier this month, expects to attract 100,000 visitors annually. It is designed as a subtle counterpoint to the stark construction of the original artillery fortress.
