this is a masterpiece.

The location upon which it's being built simply addes to the fascination.

Shielding a building under construction with canvas is common practice in Asia. It has several benefits.

I wonder if there are anyother building in N Korea with blue glass or cladding. Everything seems to be dull grey or brown or green.
