Here are some shots showing more details from inside the Bunker. I often wonder if today's children even recognize what this is.
These are the original air vents used during WWII to make sure fresh air could get into the building.
Here's a bit more history on the Bunker itself:
The Bunker is in the former East Berlin. During the divided years, the DDR used it as a storage area for tropical fruit (things that weren't available to the common citizen). When the Wall came down, it went through a number of reincarnations -the most memorable being a techno dance club (my husband visited during that time).
By the mid-1990s, the club got too loud and seedy for the neighborhood and it was closed down. The Bunker stood empty for a number of years until the government decided to auction it off to a private owner. Christian Boros purchased the space in 2003 and hired an architectural firm to redesign it to make it a place where he could both live and showcase his art collection. Renovations were complete in 2007 and the space opened to the public in 2008 (by guided tour only).
