I really don't know, no roof is more descriptive but is not in the db. There is a roof=no tag that could be added as a second one but I think that implies something more permanent. I guess I would lean toward building=construction but I am not leaning very strongly.

Also Pierre has mentioned that in Haiti and elsewhere he has seen such buildings under construction for long periods of time. They may deteriorate some but in poor countries like this they may have no other option sometimes.
