Anti-American much? only idiots would say something like that, have you seen project city center?, fountainbleu, or any of the newer projects all of them are revolutionary, this building is just 3 interconnected triangles, very tasteful NOT!, north korea doesnt even have taste buds anymore, at least not enough to know what taste is

Damn, dunno why, but i love the shape of this tower.
so unusual for today, so 80s...so...George Orwell's 1984, isn't it?

Come on guys, its not that retro, I find it pretty futuristic. And might age well, it may even be a future classic. Surely a nice change, considering the rest of the supertalls out there

It kind of reminds me of Knight Rider 2000.

this building is so ugly, how do you find the courage to compliment it?, i think this should become NK's capital building, it's design reflects the government; corrupt, communist, lacking any real structure, is barely standing, looks mightier than it is, will collapse at any moment, and is worth little

Ok, that does it. We get that you don't like it. Stop trolling this thread or a mod will remove you.

Every user on SSC has the right to say a tower sucks. But to do it like five times a day every day is just childish trolling.

Unfortunate that this tower was built in North Korea, but I really like the design. I think people keep saying it looks retro because it resembles a 1950s-style Sci-Fi rocket. It would look nice in Las Vegas perhaps...

I wonder if they are actually going to complete it or just finish the cladding and declare it "complete"... even if it would get completed who will ever use it as a hotel? I mean it's not like N.Korea is getting loads of tourists or other foreign visitors who could occupy at least half of such a massive building at any one time.

Anyway, I did not believe this thing could be U/C again. What an iconic structure.

It would sit right into the skyline of Tokyo-03 in Evangelion.

You sir are retarded for saying the building reflects corrupt nature of N.Korea. Maybe you should leave your cradle and actually read something that doesn't come from the shit media like cnn/msnbc? How can there be a corruption in North Korea when there is no opposition in the government?
As far as the architecture is concerned, sometimes the simplest blocks are the prettiest. 3 interconnected triangles look evil enough to have me vote on it for 'the baddest looking building ever'.

your bias is making your head swell, really you should know that CNN, is not biased unlike you, which is what makes it a good news source

how is NK not corrupt? it is an Autocracy, basically a monarchy, the people have little to no control over the govt. the NK govt. is as crrupt as any govt. today, learn something and read a book you idiot

as for this building it is ugly and needs to be torn down, blow it up, im sure the rubble pile will look much better
