Hotel of Doom

Hotel of Doom

The Ryugyong Hotel is probably the most bizarre building in the world. It’s a 105-story pyramid-shaped abandoned skyscraper in Pyongyang, North Korea.

Construction began in 1987 but was deserted in 1992 as North Korea entered a period of economic crisis after the fall of the Soviet Union. In 2008 construction resumed, and in 2012 the exterior was reported to be complete; but to this day the hotel remains inhabited.
