Seeming to be out of time, the Submarine Base combines concrete, steel, water, and shadow to highlight history… and art.
Dating from 1941-43, the base is one of five built by the Germans on the Atlantic coast for U-boats during the Second World War. This gigantic bunker is a veritable honeycomb with eleven alveolus linked by an inner street.
Today, a part of the building is accessible to the public and includes :
- a space for temporary exhibitions dedicated to contemporary creation
- a space dedicated to the Bassins des lumières, digital art center
Closed for works in 2020.
