The construction of this unique building took four years. And the result is quite impressive: 490 feet high and 1 367 000 square feet of floor area. The building is placed in the center of Astana, Kazakhstan.
The “walls” of the tent are made from a transparent polymer fiber, which not only transmits light, but also has a high level of thermal insulation. Because of that, in the tent is always maintaining a summer temperature. Inside the Khan Shatyr visitors can shop in the supermarket, eat in restaurants, spend their time in one of the cinemas or just walk in the family park. It also has an impressive parking lot for 700 cars, offices and gyms. But the main point of this gigantic tent is a beach resort with sand brought from the Maldives. A huge number of tropical plants, a water park and swimming pools with wave effects, as well as heated sand, allow guests to visit the resort even in the coldest winter.
