Completed in April 2011 after almost six years of work on a 90 million euros budget, the Metropol Parasol in Seville, Spain, is a true feat of modern architecture. Situated at Seville’s Plaza de la Encarnacion, the magnificent sequence of seemingly flowing parasols creates the largest wooden structure ever built.

The Metropol Parasol was designed by J. Mayer H. architects back in 2004 as part of the revitalization project of the Plaza de la Encarnacíon. Raising from the city’s medieval buildings, the Metropol Parasol is a new icon of the city of Seville, one of the most beautiful and oldest Spanish cities. The vastness and the unique design of the place make it an ideal urban center for all kinds of cultural activities, including bars and restaurants.

The Metropol Parasol stretches across an area of 18,000 square meters, while the building itself takes 5,000 square meters. The Parasol has 4 floors; the entire floor area is 12,670 square meters, while the height of the building is 28.5 meters.
