The largest building in the world has opened in China this week. At 1.7 million square meters, the glass and steel-frame New Century Global Center took only a little more than a year to build. It stands 18 stories tall and sits above a new subway station in Chengdu, a Sichuan province city of more than 14 million and one of China’s fastest-growing megalopolises. Inside you will find a 14-screen IMAX theater, restaurants, hotels, shops, a fake Mediterranean village reconstruction, a college university, skating rink, a pirate ship, and a massive artificial beach that boasts realistic sunsets and sea breezes. Oh, and 15,000 parking spaces.
