North Korea is the least visited place in the world, meaning its travel and tourism industries are far from booming. Koryo Tours is one of the only companies that allows people to travel to North Korea, and as part of a recent project asked some architects from the military-managed mystery state to conceptualise the future of travel design.
The resulting graphics are an awesome insight into the mind of an architect stuck in the 1950s. All architects in North Korea are trained at a state run school that has given the cold shoulder to new technologies and relies on somewhat outdated methods.
The results are exemplified in the following images, with wild and grand creations of mammoth proportions take on their environments and use traditional building materials such as wood to do so. Would you be more likely to travel to the Democratic People’s Republic if they had such futuristic facilities?
