RYUGYONG.ORG: Other Levels to the Ryugyong Hotel: An idea on architecture and geopolitics
CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 605-607
The prestigious international monthly architecture periodical Domus opens its June 2005 issue with the lines: "A ruin of the future? The 330-metre-tall skeleton of an unfinished hotel towers like a concrete pyramid over North Korea's capital, Pyongyang." The magazine's call "to transform the Ryugyong Hotel into a worldwide antenna for ideas" (Boeri et al. 2005, cover) was a pronunciamento we could not resist.
