Significance: The bombproof buildings at Pearl Harbor Naval Base include several distinctive building types which were all constructed circa 1942, typically in response to the December 7, 1941 attack. However, Navy planning for bombproof buildings had started before attack. These buildings were used as personnel shelters and for critical functions that had to continue even during attacks. The designers associated with several of these buildings include renowned architects Albert Kahn, Charles W. Dickey, and Vladimir Ossipoff.
