Increased interest in North Korea has arisen due to both internal and external observations that the nation is undergoing fundamental changes. Currently, there seem to be more opportunities to get information, meaning that more perspectives on North Korean society and its transitions are now available. Amassing an impressive collection of raw data about North Korean cities, urban analyses in different scales and architectural typologies, this atlas attempts a broad reading of the transformations taking place with regard to growth, modernisation and future scenarios on the Korean peninsula. Richly illustrated, the research proposes more precise paths of urban development.

Depending on their viewpoint each researcher dealing with North Korean cities creates an image of them either consciously or unconsciously. Rainer Dormels' essay deals with the historical, natural spatial, functional spatial and socio-spatial factor of this image.

- Rainer Dormels, Prof.(University of Vienna)
