Architecture In North Korea

Architecture in North Korea is heavily influenced by the traditional Korean style and socialist architecture. Buildings typically feature high-vented rooftops, columns and colors often chosen for their symbolic meanings. The two-tone gray and red roofs are used as an efficient way of regulating temperature in the buildings, while the curved eaves and lines of the roofs are designed to evoke harmony and tranquility. The scale of the buildings is also often quite small and designed to emphasize the population living in harmony with nature.

North Korean architecture, traditional Korean architecture, socialist architecture, Pyongyang architecture.
