That picture is around 9-13 years old. Can you see the film grain?

The grain means nothing. Even modern digital images shot under certain lighting conditions exhibit grain-like artifacts.

What gives it away is the crane on top.

9-13 years back is given away by the stage of construction. But 9 years ago things have started to change.

A bit off topic, but... A lot of highrises over 100m are U/C in Pyongyang at the moment, after Mirae street they are working on several project that would possibly become skyscrapers, do you have some info about them please? No diagrams regarding Mirae or the new projects are available on skyscraperpage. Here´s a video, enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkIiBqyRj9E

My god, so much useless hate here. If you guys wanna discuss politics I recommend https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/ .
If you prefer talking about architecture I would suggest using our current forum.

Comparing this building with the auschwitz concentration camp, making racist comments about generalizing eastern Europeans
and their political views in an architecture forum gives me instant diarrhea (and i didn't even have my morning coffee yet)




Fact is that the building's architecture is globally unique (no matter if in a positive or negative way).
This fact alone is worthy of discussion, no matter if you love or hate the NK government, no matter if you love or hate communism,
and no matter if you think that your personal view of the world is the only legitimate view.
This is "skyscrapercity.com" not "convincemeofyourpoliticalviews.com"

In that last photo the glass panels like they are not properly aligned in a plane. Maybe the effect looks bigger than it is though.

They're aligned better only in optical telescopes.

Lots of lights on for propaganda purposes. Rest of NK is dark.
