The Architecture of Violence | Marcelo Isarrualde

During world war II the German army built a defense system for the territories occupied that is known as the “Atlantic wall”. Near 15.000 frames of reinforced concrete were constructed all along France, which possibly constituted the last physical wall in the history of Europe as a monument with a clear identity : war itself.
