Bigger may or may not be better, but it sure does get you some
attention, especially in the world of buildings.
Populous, a Kansas City-based global mega-architecture firm, has
announced that construction already has kicked off on their design
(completed in the firm’s Brisbane, Australia, office) of what will be
the “world’s largest indoor arena” in the Philippines.
The 50,000-seat stadium in Manila, at Ciudad de Victoria, valued at
about $213 million, signifies the doings of Iglesia Ni Cristo (the
Church of Christ), with plans to have the massive structure ready for
the Philippine church’s centennial celebration in 2014.
