Modernist Monday

Images of North Korea | Enjoy this interesting peek into a seldom seen country. Take a look at some of the images here and for a bit more peek at some of the book pages here. The pastel brutalist style of some of the buildings is very unique to North Korea. Cheers and Happy Monday!

 

“The book offers a rare glimpse inside the Hermit Kingdom, Guardian journalist and photographer Oliver Wainwright takes us on an architectural journey behind closed doors in the world’s most secretive country. From the mosaic-lined lobbies of Soviet-era health centers to the candy-colored interiors of brand new theaters, his photographs shine a spotlight on the reclusive regime’s ambition to “turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland.”
