This is a really ugly building. Looks like an evil villain's lair. Definitely in my top 5 ugliest skyscrapers. (And I would say the same, if it had been constructed in North America or Europe)

I guess you're right. It's got the all-seeing eyes and seems to embrace the rest of the city. What's with christmas tree on the top of it, though? I thought North Korea was an atheist country

People, it may be rather tough, but please stop the political BS here.

Either you talk about the building - or you go elsewhere (to skybars) to discuss other issues of North Korea. Sample thread at DLM.

Any further remarks drifting away from the actual topic will be deleted and may lead to brigs/bans.


Thank you.

Thank you.

What actually is there to talk about? Has anybody been inside this thing? Does anyone know what is happening with the internal construction?

I would like to see a single picture at night. That would clear the situation about internal construction I believe.

For instance.

There might be an issue of lack of information on this one.

But if you're into discussing political stuff, society or make another lame joke about NoKo, go there: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=835000

There have been quite a few, and, like Shanghai Tower, there are no lights on at night. It's pretty much impossible to know, but a picture of the lobby further back in the thread made it clear the internal work was not finished. I'd say next year the tower will be done.

The Ryugyong really sets the 'evil' look for Pyongyang, which I love. I absolutely adore evil looking skyscrapers.

Those newly-built buildings and the Koryo twin towers are decent but not the best.

Those other old skyscrapers in the distance around the Ryugyong are terrible

Still a dead tower in a sea of light.
Pyongyang is a city for the Elite of the nation. I'm pretty sure half of those lights were turned on just for the picture XD

Are we 100% sure that the building is that height?
