A towering waste: The tallest abandoned buildings in the world that were once the height of architectural achievement before being left to fall into ruin

A towering waste: The tallest abandoned buildings in the world that were once the height of architectural achievement before being left to fall into ruin | The audience left 20 years ago | Scoop.it
Here are some of the world's tallest buildings, built to showcase the country's economic prowess, but now vacant or abandoned.
Larkworthy Antfarm's insight:

"The infamous North Korean 'hotel of doom', Ryugyong Hotel, was slated to open this year after standing empty on the Pyongyang skyline for nearly 30 years."  


This explains why no one is allowed in the country.  They have no where for any one to stay.

Al Ow En Spooks Me

Al Ow En Spooks Me | The audience left 20 years ago | Scoop.it
The Palace Theatre opened in June 1911 as the third Los Angeles home of the San Francisco-based Orpheum vaudeville circuit. Along with the Pantages Theatre a block north, it marked the migration of the theatre district from Main Street to Broadway, two blocks west. It was renamed the Palace when the fourth Orpheum opened in the 800 block in 1926, and became a movie theatre, inaugurating a policy of double features. It closed to the paying public in late 2000.
