The Ryugyong Hotel, Pyongyang, North KoreaIn the architectural industry, it is all about prestige and coming up with the most innovative, modern and beautiful designs. Face it, there are a few firms that get all the work and if you aren’t coming up with top notch creative ideas, you aren’t going to be able to compete. Yet, when we saw the following buildings, we weren’t sure what happened. I suppose you will always love something that you made but bleh! these creations sure make you think twice about what some people like versus others.
As things tend to go in North Korea, this hotel supposedly began construction in 1992 but was kept secret and seemed to be incomplete and abandoned until unveiled as complete in 2009. It’s shape, an ode to the Egyptian pyramids but when made almost entirely of cold, rough, bland, grey concrete, it is almost sad how far behind the times this massive monstrosity is. Perhaps they could have gone with a bit smaller and more tasteful looking figure.nextpage
