Ambitiously designed community buildings, faceless mass housing
developments, and a monumental emptiness are the defining
features of Pyongyang - a city of three million inhabitants rising
from the rubble to which the Korean War reducedit in the 1950s.
This architectural guide to the capital of the Democratic People’s
Republic of Korea has two parts comprising a total of 368 pages.
While Volume 1 offers a selection of images and information
on nearly one hundred buildings in Pyongyang provided by the
Pyongyang Foreign Languages Publishing House and presented
here without further commentary, Volume 2 sets this material
within its architectural and historical context.

The Architectural and Cultural Guide Pyongyang offers unprecedented
insights into the capital of what is probably the most isolated
country in the world, ruled in the third generation by a “first family”
stubbornly upholding its own brand of stone-age communism.

• 100 buildings and monuments
• Cabinet of architectural curiosities
• Brief history of North Korean architecture
