    Default Build to Fail, Fail to Build. Epic tale of building fail

    Build to Fail, Fail to Build. What is this I don't even..........

    Bit of a long thread, but worth the look - if you're really stretched for time - just look for the pics and time-lapse video.

    Pages 1,3,5,7,17 IIRC

    How about the big bad wolf? He's probably not that busy.

    Has it collapsed yet ?, probably as the sub floor would have rotted out by now.

    Did you see the link in th epost to the Hotel of Doom in North Korea.

    Started in 1987 meant to be finished by 1989, but still not finished to this day ?
    Started out as 3000 room went to 1500 room now 150 room hotel ????
    Must be nearly 1 room per floor at 105 stories high !


    FINALLY! First Pics from the Ryugyong: North Korea
