Energy Bunker: Bunker-Power Plant in Germany

If you’ve visited central Europe, you are probably familiar with the abundance of WWII bunkers across the landscape. However, this particular bunker in Hamburg, Germany, is being converted into a renewable energy plant — great for staying self-sufficient during the world’s end. Impossible to knock down, the Energy Bunker is also building a 3,000 square meter solar array on its roof and on its side. Heating will be provided using waste from a nearby factory.

Vivos: Bunker-House in the US

If you are worried about the world’s end on 12-21-12, you can keep yourself safely locked up and entertained behind a 3,000-pound blast door. One of the many recycled bunkers by company Vivos, this Cold War-era facility in California will provide you and your loved ones with a sprawling underground space measuring 20,000 square-feet. The Bunker-House comes equipped with medical services, restrooms, kitchens, and a facility to store DNA, seeds, and other samples to help revive the planet after the catastrophic event.

The Zombie Ranch: A Self-Sustaining Vertical Farm

If you don’t believe that a natural catastrophe will kill us all this coming Friday, maybe you’re one who believes that the zombie apocalypse is truly what’s upon us. But don’t worry about your brains being a tasty snack for the undead, the folks at Architects Southwest have already thought of this scenario and designed The Zombie Ranch, a self-sustaining vertical farm, with food, trees and an innovative zombie-powered energy system that will put those freaks to good use.

Bunker 42: Bunker-Nightclub in Russia

If you want to forget about the Mayans, climate change, nuclear disasters, hurricanes, radiation and politicians, your ideal last days might include drinking, dancing and having fun shaking your bones — while you have some.  This underground party space under the Moscow streets called ‘Bunker 42′ is a futuristic Cold-War era museum, restaurant, spa and club, measuring 75,000 square feet. It even comes complete with sleeping bunks and multi-colored LED lights.
