Largest Tensile Structure

Designed by Foster and Partners, the Khan Shatyr Entertainment Centre is currently the largest tensile structure in the world.

I came across this project located in Kazakhstan and decided to research it further.  It’s sort of a resort mixed with a business center and a shelter from the oppressively cold weather. And it uses a cable net. Here’s the website: http://www.khanshatyr.com (it might take a while to load).
