Dugway Provong Grounds (DPG) was selected in 1943 to test all manner of toxic agents and their antidotes, chemical dispersal systems and the nasty chemical that they would spray, the horrendous and effective (and new-ish) flamethrower and other allied bits. It was established way up in the northwest corner of Utah, in the Great Desert Basin and part of the Bonneville Salt Flats—a very tough, isolated, severe environment for being in the continental U.S., sitting where the waters of the freshwater Pleistocene Lake Bonneville used to lap up. It was at Granite Peak in DPG that biological warfare weapons were tested until that aspect of research was phased out at the end of the war in August 1946, which is the origin for these architectural plans for test combatant towns. It seems to me that these buildings were built for offensive purposes for the chemical warfare division, and primarily (?) concerned with the effects of different sorts of incendiaries against typical German and Japanese structures. i'm not sure that I've seen these images before.
DPG continues today to research chemical dispersal and micro environments, as well as toxins, pathogens and chemical agents; it also tests the reliability and survivability of military hardware subjected to biological and chemical attack—it is still a major facility and still does very major stuff. DPG is also a bizarre grail of some sort for the UFO people.
