I've got to say, the concrete used for those buildings looks a lot worse than the concrete at the Ryugyong.

Terrible.

At least the interior is decent, as seen in the above video.

The main square of the city. It is the 16th largest area in the world.



Kim Il Sung Square was opened in August 1954, shortly after the Korean War, but the main building was built already in the second wave of building in Pyongyang. People's Palace of study, the largest building in Pyongyang Korean style, opened in April 1982, exactly to the 70-th birthday of the Great Leader. In fact it is a huge library area of ​​100,000 square meters. m, with 30 million books.



A total of 21 months valiant Korean construction workers built this palace for 600 rooms with 34 distinctive roofs covered with 750,000 pieces of green tiles.



The remaining building area of the recovery period is similar to the Stalinist neoclassicism. Left - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK, at the center and right - the building of the Workers' Party of Korea. In the Central Department Store is visible tip of the number 1.



Ministry of Foreign Trade, the rarest object in the DPRK, which is not decorated with portraits of the two Kims, as Marx and Lenin. Along the perimeter of the area visible platform - here, of course, are all major military and labor parades of the country.



The ensemble of Kim Il Sung Square continues on the two cultural buildings- twins to the river - Korean Central History Museum, on which the "Trumpeter on the background of Mount Paektu, the Holy Mountain of the Revolution."



On the other hand - decorated with the flag of the Korean People's Army Art Gallery.



Kim Il Sung Square opens to the river Taedong and closes with majestic Monument of the Juche idea is the opposite of its shore.





This granite obelisk height of 170 meters, opened in 1982 for the 70th anniversary of Kim Il Sung, is especially beautiful at night.



At the foot of the monument to the 30-foot bronze sculpture of a group of three figures, representing a peasant, worker and intellectual labor. Cross-tools, they seem to look favorably on the front center of Pyongyang, lying on the opposite bank of the Taedong.

North Korea moved from 70s designs to 90s designs! Good for them.

The People's Place of Culture is absolutely beautiful! The high-rise residential blocks aren't bad either. It looks like Pyongyang will be dotted with commie blocks just like Seoul.

What do you mean? There's pretty much nothing BUT commie blocks in Pyongyang.

What I like is that some of the new projects will have solar panels for power. And North Korea is actually building upwards! Looks like they desperately want to make some cash. The nuke power center, the dam, the port... Too bad many new skyscrapers are so badly designed, the USSR knew better than to start postmodernism.
The Ryugyong is still the epitome of beauty.

Perhaps I should've rephrased that. I meant the city looks like it's building commie blocks on an increasingly large scale like Seoul did in the past when its population soared.

Solar panels - it's somewhat of a surprise, but makes sense if there is erratic power supply. And a nuclear power plant sounds disconcerting.

I used to think it was hideous until cladding was done. Now it definitely is a stunner. I'd love to see it at night.

Umm, you just contradicted yourself. Besides, North Korea is stuck in the 1940s with "socialist reforms" from their GreatLeaderThereI'veSaidItPleaseDon'tKillMe every now and then. Also, there was never a modernist nor postmodernist movement in the former USSR, because both were state-rejected in favor of "socialist realism." Please do us all a favor, and get your facts straight if you're going to defend this kind of stuff.

I didn't contradict myself, The first comment was a joke about the cylinder looking buildings, which look 90s, 'Good for them' being sarcasm.
Also, get my facts straight? About what? That Russia didn't have modernism? Brutalism is a subset of modernism... And the gothic Stalinist skyscrapers they built look better than any of those new postmodernist skyscrapers planned for North Korea.
