The world’s largest tent was officially inaugurated on Tuesday in Kazakhstan. The Khan Shatyr, designed by Foster+Partners, is 150 meters high and covered in multiple layers of ETFE, a special kind of plastic that provides an energy-efficient climate-controlled area inside the tent, protecting people from the region’s extreme climate. Khan Shatyr is designed for mixed-use development providing entertainment, culture and public space. The tent will have cinemas, restaurants, a water park and several flexible spaces to accommodate a variety of events.
