The article proposes a reading of the map of the distribution of bunkers devoid of any other information: the "bunkerization" of Albania reorganized the social territory with strategic routes and fortification, consumed enormous resources, and today describes Albania's main geographical features. Focusing on the relationship between Cold War architecture and forms of the ground, military intelligence conveyed the most important landscape work in Albania; the ornamentation of an entire country achieved with casemates as the reproducible concrete figure. Like native flora and fauna, the bunkers are characteristic of the physical Albanian environment.

Abstract

The article proposes a reading of the map of the distribution of bunkers devoid of any other information: the "bunkerization" of Albania reorganized the social territory with strategic routes and fortification, consumed enormous resources, and today describes Albania's main geographical features. Focusing on the relationship between Cold War architecture and forms of the ground, military intelligence conveyed the most important landscape work in Albania; the ornamentation of an entire country achieved with casemates as the reproducible concrete figure. Like native flora and fauna, the bunkers are characteristic of the physical Albanian environment.
