METROPOL PARASOL

The Metropol Parasol is the largest wooden structure in the world. This fascinating parasol is designed by Jurgen Mayer H. and received a red dot design award.










The Metropol Parasol is built on the Plaza de la Encarnación, in the city centre of Seville (Spain). The place used to be the centre of city life and a vibrant market.
The fascinating wooden structure of the Metropol Parasol highlights the historic significance of the medieval city centre. It houses multiple bars and restaurants, a farmers market as well as the archaeological museum. On the top of the Parasol there’s a panorama path and terrace offering incredible views of the beautiful city.

The Parasol became the new icon for Seville; it seems to grow out of the archaeological excavation site into a contemporary landmark. It defines a unique relationship between the historical and the contemporary city.  Click here for more pictures.
