Those are buildings which are still being built and don't yet have
roofs on them; what you are seeing is the interior walls of the building.
We typically tag them as building=construction.
Some of these will by now just be normal buildings since the Bing
imagery tends to be a couple years old, but in developing countries
some buildings like this are left unfinished for a long time due to
lack of money to finish the building, lack of access to building
materials, and other such limitations. As such it is useful to have
them tagged differently so a ground survey could confirm their status.
