I think we're back to optical telescopes as the largest, then.

The largest is 10.4 meters diameter, and there are several of 10 meters. That's quite a bit larger face area than these panes of glass. Even if we don't consider that they are thicker, and much more complicated than a simple sheet of window glass, they are still larger.
