Pyongyang, June 14 (KCNA) — A building for the Green Architecture Technology Exchange Company at the entrance to Ryomyong Street in Pyongyang draws attention of passersby for its peculiar blossom-shaped appearance.
Energy-saving and green architectural technologies like geothermal air-conditioning and rainwater storage technologies were applied to the building.
Skylights were installed to allow sunlight in the building and have heating-up effect in winter.
What catches visitors’ eyes in the building are solar-guided lighting apparatuses installed in places with no skylight.
In this regard, Pak Yong Su, deputy director of the Laser Institute of the State Academy of Sciences, told KCNA:
The solar-guided lighting system technology comes to be a global trend.
The company specializes in developing and applying green architectural technologies conducive to the architectural development of the country.
