    I think it's aesthetically pleasing. It's pyramidal, so it's stable. Just by itself, I'd say it's pretty nice. If I don't have to think about the starving North Koreans who built it, who could never afford to stay in it, then it's a nice building.

    I hear a lot about the starving North Koreans, but there are two sides of the coin. This building would have been a gov't project to promote employment. Probably thousands and thousands of jobs, wages (even if marginal) and pride. The whole picture makes the city look clean and nice. Damn shame the North Koreans don't have some 1%ers who could stay in there. I'm sure we'd be glad to give them some of ours, and they can keep them.

    Sure.

    But what's sad is that the money spent on that gaudy building could have gone to the starving people there in the grip of NK's dictatorship.

    Nah, that thing looks like an ugly Vegas casino. If nothing else, it definitely doesn't look like it belongs in the city surrounding it. I don't like it.

    Have you guys ever seen that Skypark in Singapore? THAT is ****ing cool.

    1. It's ugly.
    2. It's North Korea so it's not going to serve any practical use besides the one photo op.

    Is that first pic real or an artist's rendering?

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Looks real but the building itself is real. It was on Megastructures or Build it Bigger. Watched it with my daughters.
