Fallout Shelter: Designing for Civil Defense in the Cold War.
Monteyne, David.
Fallout Shelter: Designing for Civil Defense in the Cold War.
In Fallout Shelter, David Monteyne traces the partnership that developed etween architects and civil defense authorities during the 1950s and 1960s. Officials in the federal government who were tasked with protecting American citizens and communities in the event of nuclear attack relied on architects and urban planners to demonstrate the importance and efficacy of both purpose-built and ad hoc fallout shelters. Despite official rhetoric, civil defense planning in the US was ultimately a failure. Yet Monteyne argues that the partnership between architecture and civil defense helped guide professional design practice and influenced the perception and use of urban and suburban spaces.
