Salvage Station No. 8 is an Abandoned Space Bunker in the Woods of New Hampshire Made by Young Makers | @beamcenternyc

Every Summer the Brooklyn-based Beam Center facilitates the construction of installations by kids and young adults in the woods of New Hampshire. One of this year’s installations is really impressive. Reminiscent – consciously or not – of Shadowrun, a Neal Stephenson novel, Starship Troopers, Space Truckers, and yes, Burning Man, these kids drew, maquette’d, designed, and then fabricated this fascinating structure over the course of three weeks:

The interior contains some interesting decor:

(See more photos here.)

As if the installation alone wasn’t enough, there’s a full-on production of Transmissions from Salvage Station No.8:

AMAZING!

Nerdist have a write-up on the project:

When you think of camp, you probably think of playing dodgeball with friends or horseback riding or telling some campfire tales that would’ve been better had Neil Gaiman written them. But for the 90 or so kids in New Hampshire who attended Beam Camp, daily activities mostly revolved around building a life-sized abandoned intergalactic space station dubbed Salvage Station No. 8. And despite the structure having the facade of an atompunk artifact you’d come across while playing Fallout, it appears that the kids totally nailed this build. Both literally and figuratively.
