Urban infrastructure gets a second life

In 2004, a Malaysian company turned a large hangar originally meant for airships (think blimps) into an indoor tropical paradise just outside Berlin.

The hangar -- larger than 10 American football fields and tall enough to fit the Statue of Liberty -- was built in 2000 to house airships designed to carry extra large pieces of cargo. When that company went bankrupt, the Malaysian firm took over.
