World War 1 left countries devastated. After the signing of Treaty of Rapallo (1920) on a territory of the latter Yugoslavia, Italy started to build a huge alpine fortification system, which was an enormous engineering feat, consisting of supply roads and paths that led to high-alpine fortresses, outposts and other military infrastructure.
Nearly a century later, Premica Architects from Celje, Slovenia, turned the former shelter – bunker into an alpine shelter for mountaineers. The entire alpine bivouac stands on concrete foundations, on the remains of a former shelter. Supply roads and paths remain almost intact in places and serve as marked hiking paths nowadays. There are hundreds of (parts of) them remaining, offering relatively easy and safe access with even inclination to the high alpine world of this part of the Alps. /archdaily.com/
