Details

Arch of Triumph

Arch of Triumph
The Arch of Triumph is usually the first sight people are taken to on the drive to the city from the airport, and offers incredible vistas from its rooftop viewing platform.

Mt Paektu

Mount Paektu
This mountain is actually situated on the Chinese-North Korean border, and nowhere near Pyongyang, but features prominently in the country’s propaganda, mythology and symbolism, and so FULLER’s drawing places Paektu and its stories at the very top of the artwork

ice Rink

Pyongyang Ice Rink
The biggest indoor ice rink in North Korea would also prove to be one of FULLER’s favourite buildings in the city — an eccentric structure on the bank of the Pothong River that stands to attention on a flat open space.

Party Foundation Monument

Party Foundation Monument
Opened in 1995 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of North Korea’s ruling party, a huge hammer, brush and sickle are held aloft by three giant hands.
“What struck me immediately was the alignment of this spot with the Mansu Hill Grand Monument” – FULLER
