Following a competition held by the city of Seville, Spain back in 2004, a redevelopment project was initiated to build the Metropol Parasol at the site of the city’s Plaza de la Encarnacíon. Designed by J. MAYER H. Architects, the Metropol Parasol took five years to build at a cost of €90 million and is the world’s largest wooden structure, spanning a total of 12,670 square meters. Featuring a series of interweaving waffle-like panels that architecturally form canopies and walkways, the timber structure will serve as a giant farmer’s market, archeological site and an elevated plaza containing numerous restaurants and bars, marking the city of Seville as the newest urban center and a must-see destination.
