The architecture of Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, endlessly fascinates. This is a two-sided map which highlights more than 50 buildings with an introduction by British architecture and design critic, Oliver Wainwright, whose photographs are featured.
‘The buildings included on the map, ranging from 1948 to today, reflect the principles of the Hermit Kingdom’s three leaders since the end of the Korean War: the distinctive socialist-realism under Kim Il Sung, an expressive modernisation under Kim Jong Il and today’s socialist fairyland of Kim Jong Un. The map presents an architectural city unlike any elsewhere’.
And for added effect the map is translated into Northern style Korean by Dongwoo Yim.
A seriously brilliant gift at a very accessible price.
