Metropol Parasol

The Metropol Parasol or, as it is commonly known, Setas de Sevilla (Seville’s Mushrooms) or Setas de la Encarnación is a spectacular structure located in the central Plaza de la Encarnación (Encarnación Square) in Seville (capital city of Andalusia, Spain)

Its dimensions are 150 x 70 and 26 meters high. It was the winning project in a public tender carried out by Seville’s City Council in order to rehabilitate the square in which it is located. Its designer, the Berliner architect Jürgen Mayer, defined this building as follows:

“It is one of the largest and most innovative wooden structures of our time. Surpassing the site of an archaeological excavation, its sun visors, with their dense organic texture and wavy panels, rise up to become a reference place, defining a unique relationship between historic and contemporary times. “ J. MAYER H. Architects
