Warm regards,

Architecture and war, or creation and destruction, both seem like direct opposites. However… they are also both inherently linked. Whatever could not be renovated after the war, had to be rebuilt - or could something new perhaps be created instead?Arras, Ypres, Diksmuide and Nieuwpoort achieved historic status as Northern front cities, although all were almost completely destroyed. The same goes for the surrounding outskirts, plains, farms and villages, not to mention the damage caused by the saltwater inundations. A hundred years later, the consequences are barely visible, thanks to both local citizens and architects. Still visible, on the contrary, are some authentic examples of war architecture. The bunkers near Ramskapelle and the protected monuments of the Duvetorre and Bommenvrij, for example, are a few of the very last remainders.
