Origine

18 04 2007

A film by Keiichi Sugiyama. 3oo years after our era, the earth lives on, slowly hailing from the injuries caused by humans. The world is now dominated by the spirit of the forest and their anger towards humanity. In this new world co-exist two cities, one which prones harmony with the forest and the other whose desire is to mechanically bring back civilization.

The Atlantic Wall museum

18 04 2007

Tha Atlantic Wall

The Atlantic Wall was one of the last major defence lines of this century, built by German occupation forces in the period 1939-1944 along the coasts of France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Norway. During this period more than 12.000 heavy concrete bunkers were built. The project underlines the Atlantic Wall’s architectural, aesthetic, and cultural landscape value as a transnational cultural heritage, preserving a shared memory on European soil an heritage to be safeguarded and protected through the creation of The Atlantic Wall Linear Museum.
