PY 5

Cool as ice: The 1981 Pyongyang Ice Rink takes the form of a white concrete teepee, apparently designed to recall the shape of a “skater’s cap.” With capacity for 6,000 spectators, it is not only used for skating and ice acrobatics, but also volleyball, basketball, boxing and tennis. In the background is the famed (but uninhabitable) Ryugyong Hotel. Photo: Oliver Wainwright
