This tower is really inspiring, especially in the sunrise.
Is that an indoor stadium in the foreground?? Thanks.

It's called the Hall of Whispers and was originally where Kim Il Sung founded the Workers Party of Korea. Today it is used as a multi pupose stadium and as stated above, an ice rink.

Probably because there are no lights. It's still an empty shell.

It's not in operation yet. Which is also why the thread title says 'T/O' since this thread was started .

The bullshit blogs you have to sift through to get some decent photos of this building...

Just smile at the fact that you're not brainwashed and try to enjoy the pictures (I did ).

Extra: A nice view of the Mansudae complex from up close, at night:

Another detail I've noticed about this building is that from angles like in the second picture, the reclection of the wing in the glass sort of looks like it is in the exact spot of the thrid, hidden wing. I wonder if that was on purpose?

I think the building on the left would look good too if it were painted pure white.
