Esquire Magazine has nominated it as the worst building in the history of mankind:
A picture doesn't lie -- the one-hundred-and-five-story Ryugyong Hotel is hideous, dominating the Pyongyang skyline like some twisted North Korean version of Cinderella's castle.The article says that the North Koreans poured 2% of their pitiful communist GDP into this concrete pyramid. They took 20 years to not finish it.
This hotel of doom
Hasn't one bed.
It looms like a tomb
In the land of the dead.
