Exhibition Hall for Kimilsungias and  Kimjongilias · Chapter 4 It is without doubt one of the most exotic  exhibition precincts in the world, another  demonstration of the infinite Kim cult, a building  devoted exclusively to the exhibition of the most  radiant specimens of kimilsungias and  kimjongilias. Successfully grown example of  these flowers is considered a gesture of loyalty to  the leaders. Each state institution often hires  specialists in the care of these delicate plants to  control their irrigation, lighting, land quality,  ventilation and other variables. The finest pots  from each house are sent to contests organized  in the Exhibition Hall. Apart from hundreds of flowers on permanent display in this pavilion, at festivals  of kimjongilias and  kimilsungias, held each year around the time of birthdays of Kim Il Sung and Kim  Jong Il, can be admired also the flowers sent from all around the country . Even appear examples sent  by gardening enthusiasts across the five continents.  The first festival of this kind took place in 1997 at the International Center of Culture in Pyongyang,  but the high political value of plants forced, when the economy began to rise, to build a specific building  to house these events. Modern Showroom for Kimilsungias and Kimjongilias was inaugurated in 2002,  on 90th birthday anniversary of Kim Il Sung. It is situated on the banks of the Taedong, in front of the  Mansu hill statue. Its volume is austere, of pyramid based rectilinear lines, combining transparent and  blue reflecting glass. The base of the pavilion is rectangular and the exhibition space is divided in  ground floor and perimeter hallway on the first floor. The central area has double height with overhead  lighting.  The building’s exterior of glass facade, is part of the last phase of stylistic development in North  Korea. Is a reflection of architectural postmodernism emerged in the eighties in the Western world. One  of the few formal records of the inclined planes with a succession of spaces of different heights is the  Sava Congress Centre, opened in Belgrade in 1979, work of Stojan Maksimovic, that forms part of the  exhibition of the Academy of Architecture Paektusan. But the resemblance is only superficial, since the  North Korean building does not share neither transparency nor the presence in the interior of structural  elements and installations of the Yugoslav work. As well as in the case of the Three Revolutions  Exhibition, the national elements are not easily detected further than the kimilsungia and kimjongilia  images that dominate the entrance.
