2. The Pentagon

Located in Arlington, US, The Pentagon serves as the headquarters of the United States Department of Defence, including all three military services—the Army, Navy, and Air Force. It spans a large area of 603,869 square meters with 5 floors (excluding its mezzanine and basement) and has around 23,000 employees.

Constructed during 1941–43, the Pentagon aimed to bring together the offices of the War Department, which were previously spread across 17 different locations in Washington.

In 2001, during the 9/11 attacks, on the 60th anniversary of the Pentagon’s groundbreaking, terrorists hijacked a commercial airliner and crashed it into the building. This resulted in the destruction of part of the southwest side. Despite this, the majority of the damage was fixed within a year.

The Pentagon proudly claimed the title of the world’s largest office building for almost 80 years. However, it was eventually surpassed by the one and only Surat Diamond Bourse in India, which now holds the number one position.
