Architecture of WikiLeaks

© Åke E:son Lindman

Thanks to the New York Post article we noticed that this project Pionen White Mountain, which we featured November 24, 2008, is indeed the WikiLeaks Headquarters.   Pionen – White Mountain designed by Albert France-Lanord Architects is housed in a former 1,200 sqm  Cold War bunker (originally built as a World War II bunker); an amazing location 30 meters down under the granite rocks of the Vita Berg Park in .

One of the original founders of WikiLeaks is architect John Young. Sections and more photographs following the break.

Update: It seems that the New York Post article was misleading. The Pionen – White Mountain facilities, a Bahnhof computer center, hosts two Wikileaks servers at these facilities and provides power, cooling, and Internet access to the servers.

    Brilliant. It looks like something that was pulled out of a James Bond movie.

    That’s freaking unreal. I love it. Seeing those photos just gave this whole fight a bit of a mystical feeling.

    That is elaborate.

    It needs a tv screen with a direct link to the UN, and the Pengagon. And it needs a shark tank, full of sharks with freekn’ laser beams. Then my plans will be complete. Mwwahahahaaa…!
