Tirpitz Bunker Museum by Bjarke Ingels Group

Hidden under the dunes, the new Tirpitz Museum, designed by Bjarke Ingels, has finally been transformed with four distinct galleries alongside the original bunker. The museum will explore both the lighter and darker chapters of the region's history and the first round of programming, designed by Tinker Imagineers, will feature an exhibit on WWII called "A Wall of Concrete," as well as one on the West Coast landscape and one on amber, a special treasure of the area.

The design, itself, maintains the continuity of the landscape and embeds the majority of the building beneath the dunes, making the exhibition itself, a dugout of sorts. Four open-air troughs connect the spaces and meet at a central courtyard nestled under the sand—a questionable design choice considering the aerial view resembles a certain Nazi symbol.
