Parasol par excellence

Brilliant urban design: Metropol Parasol in Seville, Spain.  Opened in April 2011.  Built of bonded timber with polyurethane coating.  Fantastic structure echoing the grid of the city, mushrooming out of a regenerated square, Plaza de la Encarnacion.  Housing an archaeological site, eateries, farmers’ market, places to meet.  You can also walk along a walkway on top to see the city.  Designed by J. Mayer H.
