Metropol Parasol – The Largest Wooden Structure in the World

La Plaza de la Encarnacion in Seville has become a new tourist magnet since the Metropol Parasol project was completed last month. Designed by J. Mayer H. Architects, this is the largest wooden structure in the world. It is a waffle-like crown structure which allows for a variety of activities, including commerce, memory and leisure.

The timber construction offers an elevated plaza, an archeological museum, multiple restaurants and bars and a farmers market. On the top of the parasols there is a panorama terrace that affords sweeping views of the city.
