Metropol Parasol in Seville, the World’s Largest Wooden Structure
April 2011 marks the completion of “Metropol Parasol”, the redevelopment of the Plaza de la Encarnacíon in Seville, Spain.
Designed by J. MAYER H. architects, the waffle-like crown structure comprises the world’s largest wooden structure and becomes the new icon for Seville, a place of identification and to articulate Seville’s role as one of the world´s most fascinating cultural destinations.
“Metropol Parasol explores the potential of the Plaza de la Encarnacion to become the new contemporary urban centre. Its role as a unique urban space within the dense fabric of the medieval inner city of Seville allows for a great variety of activities such as memory, leisure and commerce. A highly developed infrastructure helps to activate the square, making it an attractive destination for tourists and locals alike.
