Pyongyang Architecture Map
Blue Crow Media
Discover the remarkably original architecture of Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, with this two-sided bilingual guide including a map, details of over 50 buildings, an introduction and photography by OliverWainwright.
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.
The map is written and includes photography by Wainwright, and is translated into Northern style Korean by Dongwoo Yim.
