The world's largest glass and steel structure

The world's largest glass and steel structure



It is the largest glass and steel structure in the world and it is located in the Chinese Sichuan province, housing hotels, offices, a beach resort and an artificial sun. Capable of housing 20 Sydney Opera Houses or three Pentagons in its staggering 1.7 million square-metre interior the New Century Global Centre in Chengdu opened its doors on 1 July 2013.

The colossal 18-storey glass and steel superstructure has a wavy roof and is built above a new metro station. The building is 500 metres long, 400 metres wide and stands 100 metres high.

A 65 metre-high lobby covering 10,000 square metres greets visitors as they enter the centre. Visitors will then find the Paradise Island Oceanic Park, with a 400 metre sandy beach and the largest indoor LED screen in the world that projects images of seascapes and horizons.
