Paul Virilio. Bunker Archeology

Paul Virilio

Princeton Architectural Press, New York, 2009


This is the first English-language translation of the French edition published in 1975 to accompany the exhibition of Paul Virilio’s photographs at the Pompidou Center. The author’s haunting photographs are accompanied by his analysis of the architecture of war in both philosophical and concrete terms. Virilio discusses fortresses and military space in general and the bunkers themselves, including facsimiles of original military maps and extracts from Hitler’s “Directives of War.” He also examines the role of Albert Speer, Hitler’s architect, in the rise of the Third Reich.
