Abandoned Military Bunkers In Albania Converted Into Eco-Hostels [Video]
Concrete Mushrooms hopes to transform unused battle structures into inhabitable spaces.
Communist dictator, Enver Hoxha, had built over 750,000 bunkers scattered throughout Albania during his 40-year leadership. One of these concrete mushroom-shaped structures was built for every four Albanians, but was never used for its intended purpose. Until now, the vast number of bunkers were abandoned after the collapse of Communism in 1990. Graduate students Gyler Mydyti and Elian Stefa hope to transform these bunkers into usable facilities in a project called ‘Concrete Mushrooms.’
The project aims to turn the cold, life-less structures into a network of eco-hostels, cafes, gift shops and more. Watch the video below for a bit of background information on the project:
