Like most of north korea's large buildings it will likely sit empty since most north koreans are so poor it takes the concept of poverty to a shockingly bad place.

This building's details are beautiful. I love it. It looks a bit like the vision i have in my head of the governmentbuilding, George Orwell described in the first chapter of 1984.

No, but it has been told multiple times already in this thread that any political trash talk is prohibited and you should refrain frmo making such remarks. It's not like you're discovering America with you statements.

I also noticed that if I'm thinking maybe it's how they deliver the concrete? It looks to be some type of pipe which may be part of a concrete pumping system, just a guess on my part.
