    "cool" and "functional/practical" are two different things.


    I think the idea of a giant sea platform in the middle of the ocean that functions as its own country is cool, but it's not functional/practical. I use that as an example because there actually is a movement of people trying to do that.

    They probably ran out of money...again, and haven't furnished it yet.

    Well, before they start installing cubicles, office chairs, and houseplants they ought to put in...walls and floors.

    I think the building on the picture looks rather cool and special. The article the picture is taken from btw, is an article about how North Korea is now putting glass on the building.
    or maybe you just have ****ty taste?

    Ignoring any political issues relating to it for the moment...


    I think it is very unique, artistic and beautiful, so yes.

    I have no idea as to its functionality.... but not everything has to be purely functional.

    Kind of has that Frank Lloyd Wright feel to it....

    Ok maybe not.

    Although the top of the building does look like a nice place to hide a mega sized nuclear warhead. So maybe it is functional
