The record-breaking roof of KPF's Spectacle event space at the MGM Cotai resort in Macau

Practice notches up Guinness World Records entry for resort’s £28m steel diagrid roof

Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates has landed itself a place in the record books with the steel diagrid roof of its Spectacle space at the MGM Cotai resort in Macau.

The resort includes two hotel towers created from eight cantilevered boxes, a casino, a shopping complex, a 2,000-seat theatre and a convention centre at podium level.

The central focus of the resort is the 9,000 sq m Spectacle multi-purpose activity space, covered by the column-free diagrid glass roof.
