Bug-Out house idea - Silo houses may seem like a strange concept, but they're more common than you may realize. The design firm Gigaplex converted this silo in Utah into a house.
I LOVE SILO HOMES!!! Prefab vacation house in Woodland, Utah: "It was designed by Gigaplex Architects and is constructed from two metal grain silos, joined together to create one very cool 1,800 square foot house. The circular exterior creates circular rooms inside, and, like many modular homes, the silo house is extremely energy efficient." #prefab

Nazi Flak tower. Used to protect Berlin and other major German cities from massed allied aircraft bombing raids. They acted as gun platforms and air-raid shelters and could hold thousands in their bunkers.
The Augarten Flak Tower- Vienna, Austria- one of several flak towers constructed by Hitler (literally -- he personally took part in designing them) in 1942 to act as combined bomb shelters and anti-aircraft battlements against the Allied forces -- a job they carried out so well that when the Soviets later tried to demolish them in peacetime, their explosives only hurt the surrounding buildings.

Quaker Square Inn, Akron, Ohio: At the Quaker Square Inn, guests stay in a former oat silo. And not just any oats: Quaker Oats.

To mark such occasion, the silo’s walls were perforated with 2,012 holes that display a mesmerizing light show in Helsinki’s Kruunuvuorenranta district.
