Rietveld Landscape, Atelier de Lyon sliced up a former defense bunker, opening up it’s interior which normally can’t be seen. A footpath was build, starting on top of the dyke, through the bunker (literally) and ending as a pier on piles in the flooded adjacent reserve.
Bunker 599 is part of the former defense line called the Nederlandse Waterlinie (Dutch Waterline). The line protected the western part of the Netherlands by means of intentional flooding. The line was active from 1815 until 1940.
Bunker 599 is located on the Diefdijk, next to highway A2, near Culemborg. More info on the build check this link.
