I still don't get why they started construction on this KNOWING that they would eventually run out of money. So stupid!

Some people just want to watch the world burn. That's what happens when people are overconfident.

^ The Ryugyong Hotel had one stuck for 20 years.

But anyway, I was never a fan of this building to begin with though it sucks that it's halted construction but it's not surprising.

In my opinion it is very far from being a brutalist building. In my opinion brutalist buildings have simple and functional shapes. The Slaughterhotel on the other hand has very wild shapes that have nothing to do with functionality. As to the Pentominium, even though it isn't a boxy building, I kinda liked it. In my opinion it definitely didn't deserve the cruel fate of being on hold with no perspective of ever getting built.
