Really nice!

I wonder what's with that monorail though... did the track always just end there?

I was curious about that as well, so I looked in to it. The Palazzo de Lavoro and monorail were built for the Italia '61 Exposition, which also coincided with the 100-year anniversary celebration of Italian unification. The monorail connected different parts of the Expo together.


Tutto Collezioni

It was originally much longer, but fell into disuse after 1963. Couldn't find any info about when it was partially dismantled. From modern pictures, it seems like they widened the boulevard that ran parallel to the monorail, thus necessitating its removal. If I read Italian that would probably have helped.



Another cool building built for the '61 Expo is the Palazzo a Vela, aka Palavela.

It too had fallen into disrepair, but was given a new life for the 2006 Winter Olympic games. They essentially stripped it down to just the concrete "sail" and built a modern stadium beneath it.

Haha, yea they kinda did. But it was in danger of complete ruin, as is Palazzo del Lavoro currently. It's a hard line to walk. Always sad to see cities fail to find uses for these awesome, colossal mid-century structures.

FIAT Lingotto factory (Torino, Italy)

Designed and built back in the days were safety was the last of concerns, between 1916 and 1923 by Matté Trucco, the amazing characteristic about this factory (the biggest in the world at the time) was it's racetrack in the roof. The factory was designed in a way that the assembly line would go in a spiral to the top, with the finished cars in the roof so they could be tested in the track. Le Corbusier called it "one of the most impressive sights in industry; a guideline for town planning". It was closed in 1982. In 1989, Renzo Piano redesigned some parts of the interior an the top so it would have retails, concert halls and a exposition room. A true gem, in my opinion.

What a cool building. I had never seen interior shots. I love the modern helipad on top, kinda looks like a helicopter itself!

I like the fact that they let this one live and didn't decide to destroy it. It looks good today and it's definitely a place I would visit if I go to Italy.

I can assure you less than the 5% of Ryugyong Hotel will be ever used. Useless construction.

You never know. People once said it would remain a concrete hulk on the skyline forever.

Unless North Korea becomes a nice touristic resort, which would involve getting rid of the Kim family, I doubt it

I honestly liked how it looked with just the concrete arches. Maybe they could have painted it white and put some benches and tables under it so people can hang out there and it would have still looked true to its style. Now it looks like a cheap construction from 1998.
