I agree. I can definitely see this building in Dubai. This has turned out a lot better than I expected and I can not wait until it's finished

I completely agree with you droneriot the building is great but the surrounding building are so old and lack any real architectural interest.Hopefully the North Korean Government will decide to build more modern building around the Ryugyong Hotel.

ok, so what happens with the edges? seems like they're lost with what they're going to do... maybe smooth out the concrete before putting some clad?

To me, it still looks like an old man wearing a hat and resting on his knees. With a giant freakin' death ray laser shooting from his eyes.

That's an interesting description. I've never thought of it that way. I always thought this building looks like a mountain.

To me it looks like scaffoldings wrapped in protective net. Maybe they are repairing/reinforcing/re-casting the concrete at the ages before cladding comes in.

Idiots never learn. We'll have to ban more of them in a few weeks.

Thank you so much z0rg!

You know, i never liked this building the way it was unfinished until they started to put glass on it; now i kind of miss it! Though im sure it'll look really cool when its done. Im now fond of the building actually!

I did though.

Anyways, I'm hoping they finish the cladding soon. Hopefully someone over there can make some more nice photos. I'm so curious though to see the inside. Especially the restaurant. The view from there must be epic.

North Korea is a poison emitting nation, not somewhere should visit for fun. It is some of the ugliest jokes in the whole world. It may look beautiful however, if you have the suicidal wishes.
