More Buildings

The photo makes this structure look small, but it’s gigantic, like something out of Blade Runner: a never-finished government ministry building that’s been completely squatted out. People have installed cane lattice interior walls and sealed up some of the windows. At the time of President Doe’s assassination, there were several giant government buildings like this one under construction, including the ominous Ministry of Defense fortress in Congo Town and the two biggest high-rise complexes on the Downtown skyline. With Doe’s death, apparently work just stopped.
