Khan Shatyr: World's Largest Tent In Astana, Kazakhstan (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:


The world's biggest tensile structure, the Khan Shatyr Entertainment Center, opened in Astana, Kazakhstan earlier this month to a lot of fanfare.  This Norman Foster designed structure is not only the largest tent in the world -- but has plenty of impressive green features from copious natural daylighting to interior gardens and living systems.  Measuring 150 meters tall with a 200 meter radius and 100,000 square meters contained within the translucent canopy, this is one of the most visually striking projects we've seen this year. Read on to see Inhabitat's exclusive photos of the world's biggest tent.
