Survival Condo: Bunker-Apartment in the US [5]

If you were looking for a totally indestructible shelter for surviving the approaching 2012-doomsday scenario, a converted nuclear ballistic missile silo could have been a good option, but sadly this particular model is completely SOLD OUT. Retailing for just $2 million per apartment, the Survival Condo [6] in Kansas, is a 14-story shelter with enough food [7] to feed 70 people indefinitely. It also comes with a fitness center, a bar, a pool and a movie theatre showing videos of how the Earth looked before it all went down in flames.

Vivos: A Luxury Bunker-House In the US [8]

If you cannot bear spending the apocalypse without a big flatscreen TV, a washing machine ,and a well-equipped kitchen, Vivos [9] might be your best bet. Located beneath the Mojave Desert [10], these stylish interconnected underground bunkers promise to keep you, your family and animal-friends [11] (these go for free!) safe and comfy for a long-term stay.

Angebauter Tarnrucksack: Bunker-Cultural Center in Switzerland [12]

If  don’t want to spend your last days without any art and culture, then this green-roofed Cold War-era bunker [13] turned cultural center might be the most clever way to spend the world’s end. Located within the Swiss Alps, Angebauter Tarnrucksack by Atelier-f [14] is a solid construction, boasts a green roof and beautiful views of the mountains (we’re not sure how well these will hold post-Apocalypse), and is a true doomsday escape for the most discerning artist.

Energy Bunker: Bunker-Power Plant in Germany [15]

If you’ve visited central Europe, you are probably familiar with the abundance of WWII [16] bunkers across the landscape. However, this particular bunker in Hamburg, Germany, is being converted into a renewable energy [17] 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 [18]

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 [19], 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 [20], seeds, and other samples to help revive the planet after the catastrophic event.

The Zombie Ranch: A Self-Sustaining Vertical Farm [21]

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 [22] 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 [23], 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 [24]

If you want to forget about the Mayans [25], 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 [26] 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.
