Ukranian Community Bunker Housing Facility

underground-6710300_1920.jpg Ukranian Community Bunker Housing Facility

The recent events between Russia and Ukraine gave us a reminder of the bunker’s utility as a civil defence structure. Most of the Ukrainian existing ones are in a very poor shape due to the lack of maintenance and are mainly for government use. Last year’s official statistics showed that just 11 per cent of Ukraine’s 21,000 underground shelters were operational.
“Today, the bunker has become the extreme expression of our greatest fears: from pandemics to climate change and nuclear war. And once you look, it doesn’t take long to start seeing bunkers everywhere.” GARRET, Bradley, “Bunker”, Penguin, 2021.Our challenge is to design a bunker for a community of 1000 people, self-sufficient for a 2 years period.
