Waiting for the end of the world
Princeton Architectural Press
People from around the world have been building shelters to protect themselves from catastrophe for centuries. Waiting for the End of the World is a photographer Richard Ross's journey into this quirky, somewhat paranoid, and occasionally beautiful underground world.
Ross has documented not only the bomb shelters of the United States, but also examples from Vietnam, Russia, England, Turkey, and even Switzerland, where citizens are required by law to have a bomb shelter.
Waiting for the End of the World features an interview by author and social commentator Sarah Vowell.
