內容簡介


英國《衛報》攝影記者Oliver Wainwright,為讀者帶來300幅世界最神秘國家北韓的重要建築。

韓戰時平壤被摧毀殆盡,北韓國父金日成自1953年起,在廢墟中開始重建首都。依照他的願景,平壤成為以數條大道做為軸線,連結數座巨大紀念碑,徹底展現他所謂的”外在形式為國家主義,內在是社會主義”的城市。

北韓建設在當今領導人金正恩的帶領下飛快成長,意圖把國家打造成一個”社會主義式的仙境”。這個公開的愛國口號,使得平壤很快地變成一個結合了繁榮幻象的遊樂場,他把建築當成強力的麻醉劑,藉此麻痺在他威權體制下的人民。

這場令人大開眼界的視覺之旅,為我們帶來平壤宏偉建築的石造門面,內部由大理石與馬賽克所打造的奢華世界,裝飾的天花板、水晶大吊燈、令人目眩神迷的內部裝潢。不管是人民大學習堂富麗堂皇的閱讀室,或是為了從未發生在平壤的世界盃足球賽所重新翻修的綾羅島五一競技場,讀者藉由本書都能窺見一二。

作者在導論中所列表的平壤發展史,說明了這些建築與內裝都體現了北韓所謂的”國家主體思想”。他同時質疑,這個謎樣國家透過建築所表達的野心,到底要把國家帶往何處。

Pastel Dreams
The powerful architecture of North Korea

Erased by bombing during the Korean War, North Korea’s trophy capital of Pyongyang was entirely rebuilt from scratch from 1953, in line with the vision of the nation’s founder, Kim Il-sung. Designed as an imposing stage set, it is a place of grand axial boulevards linking gargantuan monuments, lined with stately piles of distinctly Korean flavor, to be “national in form and socialist in content.”

Under the present leader, Kim Jong-un, construction has ramped up apace―“Let us turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland,” declares one of his official patriotic slogans. He is rapidly transforming Pyongyang into a playground, conjuring a flimsy fantasy of prosperity and using architecture as a powerful anesthetic, numbing the population from the stark reality of his authoritarian regime.

Guardian journalist and photographer Oliver Wainwright takes us on an eye-opening tour behind closed doors in the most secretive country in the world, revealing that past the grand stone façades lie lavish wonder-worlds of marble and mosaic, coffered ceilings, and crystal chandeliers, along with new interiors in dazzling color palettes. Discover the palatial reading rooms of the Grand People’s Study House, and peer inside the locker rooms of the recently renovated Rungrado May Day Stadium, ready to host a FIFA World Cup that will never come.

This collection features about 300 photographs with insightful captions, as well as an introductory essay where Wainwright charts the history and development of Pyongyang, explaining how the architecture and interiors embody the national “Juche” ideology and questioning what the future holds for the architectural ambitions of this enigmatic country.

“A fascinating photographic tour of North Korea’s colourful and bizarre interiors which resemble Wes Anderson movie sets.”
