Is this tower very structurally sound since it was left uncladded for about a decade?

You haven't been on this tread much, have you? The building's safe, don't worry. They reinforced the weaker concrete parts.

It's been built in the wrong place. It would look great on the moon.

The North Koreans should be proud of this beauty. It's really the only thing they have to be proud of.

That is a beautiful picture.

It seems that North Korea might be on the verge of implementing some limited capitalist policies as China did in the early 80s. Because North Korea is both small and incredibly insular, however, they might be able to implement them without following through with the social reforms that have come about in China since the Cultural Revolution.

I have known two North Koreans in my life. They are both incredibly friendly, and I wish them and their country well.

Most of the shots of the building I see seem to be coming from one angle only. Were those shots taken at the "western-style" hotel?

Thanks for the pictures, kanye. Great views there. The glimmering facade seems a bit out of place when compared to the rest of the city. Hopefully NK can build some more glassy buildings in the vicinity.

The facade makes a huge difference! It actually looks very futuristic, however a little out of place.

I won't be surprised if they name it Kim Il Sung tower and make it into a Communist government hub.

I really like how it looks from those shots above. I wonder how photogenic it is at a closer vantage point?
