The Pentagon was the world’s largest office building for more than 80 years. This new building in Surat, India is now bigger. 

For more than 80 years the Pentagon was the world’s largest office building. Now, a new mega office structure in India claims to be even more spacious, according to CNN’s Oscar Holland. 

The newly opened Surat Diamond Bourse will be a one stop center for more than 65,000 diamond industry professionals. Built on 35 acres, the project consists of nine rectangular buildings all 15 stories tall. 

The Bourse is connected via a central architectural spine that connects the 7.1 million square feet of floor space. CNN published photos of the complex last week. Images were taken by Edmund Sumner. CLICK HERE for more. 

The structure’s spine flares out at each end to funnel
breeze through the buildings. 

The building’s atriums were designed to encourage natural ventilation
through the nine (15-story) structures. 

 The building was created by Indian architecture firm Morphogenesis following an international design competition.
