With the surface of 1, 76 mil. square meters the new Century Global Center is the biggest single building in the world, according to CNN. The building was launched on a formal ceremony in the Chinese southwest province Sichuan.
It took 3 years for the building to be constructed. The area of the complex includes commercial areas (400 000 sq. meters), 2 hotels, university complex, aqua park with a 400-meter artificial beach, conference halls, IMAX cinema with 14 halls. The most interesting part of the building is the “artificial sun” – a system that was developed in Japan, providing light and warmth.
