Bomb-shelter modernism

SLLB Architects in London have plans to convert a Cold War A-bomb bunker into a modernist home. But as The Rat and Mouse writes, the firm doesn't yet have clearance for such creative reuse; a council member is reported saying, "There are various conditions to be satisfied which involve the use of appropriate materials and the preservation of important historical features such as the plant room and a central map room surrounded by a circulatory corridor."
