Dallas Cowboys Stadium
Skyscrapers, airports, iceboxes - the Americans are famed for making everything that little bit bigger, and sports stadia are no exception. One of the most beautiful examples of this kind of gigantism is the Cowboys Stadium, the new home of the Dallas Cowboys American football team. The new arena with capacity for 80,000 spectators is topped by the world's largest moving dome roof, under which there would be room even for the Statue of Liberty.
