The world’s largest structure

Posted: May 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

Moscow is moving ahead with the construction of Crystal Island, a 1500 ft. tall multi use structure featuring 900 apartments, 3000 hotel rooms, an international school for 500 students, cinemas, a theater, sports complex and much more. It will house 30,000 residents and it  will contain more floor space than any other structure on Earth.

The £2 billion “city inside a building” was designed by Lord Foster. The surface area of the proposed Crystal Island complex in Moscow is more than double that of the largest current building, and visitors will be able to enjoy panoramic views of Moscow on the viewing platforms located 980 ft. above ground.
