DPRK design: A Pyongyang apartment in Seoul

In a new exhibition, architect Dongwoo Yim hopes to offer Seoulites a slice of N. Korean high-life

With the goal of showing how the daily lives of North Koreans have changed since Kim Jong Un came to power, South Korean architect Dongwoo Yim has put together a rare exhibition: “Pyongyang Sallim” – meaning Pyongayng living or housekeeping – at this year's Architecture Biennale in Seoul.

The idea dates back to his days at Harvard University, Yim told NK News on location at the Biennale.
