    How is that relevant to the visual appeal of the building? And how do you knoz they "didnt see a need" to finish it for 16 years?

    As far as I know it was a money issue, and they COULD not finish it.

    Look at the voting between the two threads. Its almost bizarre how people favor the empire state building. Now please explain the visual appeal of that vs the north Korean one..
    Where a building is located adds to the overall beauty of it. The Empire State building is located at what has been not only the cultural capital of the world since the 40s. It's architecture one of the finest and purest examples of Art Deco. Add to that the fact that 'The glass' on the North Korean building adds NOTHING to the structure for the most part. It's simply there to cover up and distort. Meanwhile the Empire State building was with the thought that not only should it fit into the overall look and feel of the city it was built in but that it should also be a sign of the power held by this city.

    ..and I am NOT talking about the inside
    where the building is located
    the buildings around

    how its structured
    how feasible it is
    the concrete

    and so on..

    Only about the building and its visual appeal.
    Your stupidity knows NO bounds. ALL these things ADD to the visual appeal of a building. SPECIALLY where it is located. That monstrosity in NK is in the middle of nowhere. It is an eye sore. In other word it sticks out like a sore thumb. There is nothing to compliment it. That you're still sitting here arguing that because you think something everybody else finds ugly is cool doesn't make it so.

    Hotel of Doom - Ryugyong Hotel - Pyongyang - Esquire

    A picture doesn't lie -- the one-hundred-and-five-story Ryugyong Hotel is hideous, dominating the Pyongyang skyline like some twisted North Korean version of Cinderella's castle. Not that you would be able to tell from the official government photos of the North Korean capital -- the hotel is such an eyesore, the Communist regime routinely covers it up, airbrushing it to make it look like it's open -- or Photoshopping or cropping it out of pictures completely.
    ........................lol.

    You think I am stupid because the structural soundness and location of the building do not matter in its VISUAL appeal? Thats about the funniest thing I ever heard.

    The world really is heading down the drain..

    Esquire is a magazine I do not trust for unbiased reporting. As far as I have heard neither do Americans in general.

    What I am asking is do you have a source for your claim that they ran out of money?

    Generally from all media that I have seen talk about the hotel..

    The first source I came up with..

    North Korea in the midst of a mysterious building boom - Los Angeles Times

    construction ceased on the concrete skyscraper in 1992 due to financial difficulties.
    And afterall like you people keep repeating it cost like 2% of North Korean GDP, so I think its more likely it stopped by money than that they "didnt see a need to finish it"..

    Wikipedia..

    cost of construction was US$750 million
    There had been some question about whether North Korea had the raw materials or energy for such a massive project.[2] A government official said in 2008 that construction had previously been halted when funds ran out.

    Thank you.

    They probably couldn't find anyone to invest in their ugly building.
