anyone else on the forums at skyscraperpage.com?

 

right now I'm living in a city that's home to a wide assortment of bad modernist/brutalist era architecture. its depressing. especially when you see what was demolished to make way for it.

that thing is gonna fall apart once the first stiff breeze hits it. I was shocked to see photos of it being covered the other day. it looks fucking awesome, but none of the structural issues have been addressed. just window dressing.

Pyongyang- Ryugyuong Hotel-105 floors

I read that construction on this motherfucker had recently started up again.. good looks.

 

That thing is so eerie - sat as an abandonned concrete skeleton for years. What the fuck does N.Korea need a 105-floor hotel for when half the country doesn't have electricty or food...

i remember being on the redneck version of myspace (fubar.com) and seeing some sort of halfassed article written about the skyscraper in dubai, and remembering seeing hundreds of comments like 'GO THERE, AND THE TERRORISTS WILL KILL YOU'.

 

and they will. (not really. dubai is peaceful)
