North-Korea-12.jpg
190 KB, 1024x768
A week or two ago I read an interesting bit about these North Korean Architects who were asked to present their image of the future, without being limited by money, or structural integrity. This picture is one of a set that they presented.
What's your opinion, /g/?

lel, that hotel they built in the middle of a city is a fucking disaster

they can't build one building, they won't be able to build a whole city

Where the fuck does the water come from?
If you need to pump it up in the first place then there is no reason how this could generate more energy than wasting it
>>
>>43088335
Ive never personally been there, and I've only seen shoddy VICE videos and stuff, but Ive always wondered if that hotel is considered "High-Class" or not, given the obvious neglect of everything else Ive been able to get a good look at online.
>>
>>43088388
They fucked up. They realized they had fucked up when it was too late. They decided to finish the outside and abandon the inside. It's basically a monument to the failure of planned economies.

It's not quite a hotel
It's just an empty structure.

That I would like to see the rest of the set.
At least, they're thinking of renewables, and respectful symbiosis with nature. Thats much more advanced than everything "we" built until now.

- That I like the conceptions on authorship, and culture centrism expressed by Gizmodo, specially when most of US intellectuals rebrand ideas from the past as their own.
- That none of the pictures feature any political symbol whatsoever.
- That some of the ideas shown, are to a certain degree convergent with the principles of sustainability, and ecology.
- That some others, look like sci fi novels from the fifties.
- Oh, and that the degree of paternalism - or maternalism, if you like it genderist - is just lovely, as if people thought no good contribution could be issued from any human mind, independently from the country it comes from.

it looks like shit
it looks hard to go around from place to place, with all that water getting in the way
why the water?
that's not how hydraulic energy works
basically, those people are shitty artists as far as I can see, instead of actual engineers

Yeah. Thats utterly and absolutely stupid. Water is not even important at all. Don't use it, acquire more goo. Let the water for us.

Imagine yourself having your battle station room in the top of that high tech pyramid. How would it look like? Would you rather have your screens on the surrounding glass, using the same tech as the helmets of the combat fighter pilots, or would you rather have screens? Would you have a floating sit, using anti gravitational technology? Some sort of mind controlled array of drones? A body repairing facility? A nice gym to exercise on a daily basis? Would the pyramidion be a huge antenna to launch signals where you want it in space? Would it also have a huge telescope for you to gaze at distant worlds?

Dream like a kid, kiddo!

what the fuck is this bullshit you fucking idiots

where is the water coming from? it can't be flowing UP into those and it can't fucking be magicaly coming out of them. Did they bother thinking for a second about what they even drew?

this is fucking RETARDED. it just screams MUH CLEAN ENERGY. MUH WETTER POWER.
>>
>>43089466

Imagine a 40 m3 circular room, on top of a structure like that, with thousands of miles of eyesight, 360 degrees around you. Now imagine that is your desk. How would you distribute the space?

I think I would use the glass as computer screens at will, and maybe even, make the huge desk, covering an arch of the circle from the floor.

The ground would be wood covered, but with a magnetic field underneath, so I could build a chair with reversed polarity, that would float in the air, and move seamlessly around.

Bwahahaha

what is this, a city for hamsters?

>I think I would use the glass as computer screens at will, and maybe even, make the huge desk, covering an arch of the circle from the floor.

My guess is that the desk would be hidden under the floor if it's not used.

Better than Le Corbusier's. Your talent is officially wasted.

Why would an underdeveloped country of 24 million people with extremely light electricity consumption and lack of both export and import need such a colossal project?

>megalomaniac
There's your answer
>>
>>43089248

North Korea created their own Communism spin-off called Juche which centers on self-reliance and "military first". This is why they are so militarized like that, and why they always build things with such grandiose; they want to tell people that Communism allows them to build such things without having to rely on a market ideology, even if that means that the building will be used once a year. It's more of a psychological thing I presume.

>>43092456

Every culture has it's symbols. The west also builds megalomaniac skyscrapers. They even have a competition to know who is able to build the highest one.

The future cities will have to integrate more plant life amongst the people. As more and more people migrate to the inner cities; architects will have to find ways to evenly spread out the people without too much cluster. Which means more elevation of walkways, pathways, rooftop gardens, waterway channels, and abstract artistic designs to inspire creative thinking.

Solar energy will also become the dominant form of energy, every building will have to meet the standards of eco-friendly input & output.

Aquaponic indoor gardens will harness the power of LED lights with AI to assist the plants in near perfect conditions (this has already been accomplished in Japan by a company). The idea is to make every city 100% self sustainable in case the grid goes down to ensure the longevity of a healthy city life. Everyone will become so deeply interconnected with each other that such immense amounts of data will help configure the necessary routes the city should make.

The future is quite exciting, we are in the beginning stages of becoming an interstellar civilization. What we're about to witness in the coming decades will make our current times seem extremely simplistic in comparison to what's coming ahead for humanity.
>>
>>43089603

Actually if you built that chair with reverse polarity, it would get stuck to the ground. You'd rather need to build it with the same polarity as the one underneath.

It's a pretty good idea if you ask me, I don't know why the fuck would you waste it, by sharing it with people who would not have the slightest remorse in stealing it, and branding it as theirs for profit.

Sometimes I get the feeling sooner or later the American economy is going to collapse financially. And if that happens.... just imagine if Google along with Silicon Valley takes over and endorses Bitcoin as a replacement. Imagine if this happened in a matter of weeks as everyone panics to find a new way. I ponder such a reality everyday.

Consider such possibilities. If you think the current financial system will last then you are solely mistaken and foolish to assume so. Currently there are no other alternatives as a replacement. More and more businesses are adopting Bitcion by the day.... keep that in mind.

Bitcoin is just another FIAT currency with no authority behind it, thus making it doubly garbage.

If you dont like FIAT currency, you shouldnt like Bitcoin either. Not to mention that everything that came after bitcoin were blatant scams spammed on /g/ so much that moot had to make a board for it. And now even /biz/ doesnt have many threads anymore.

The beauty is that it's decentralized. Even if the government tried to control it it'll be so diverse that they at most could control only a portion of it. What may end up happening from this is 2 competing economies. May the best man win.
>>
>>43093132
>FIAT
No, there's real value behind every Bitcoin: solutions to mathematical (hashing) problems and the hardware and electricity needed to solve them. In fact the value of BTC is very close to the material cost.
