Spain Shows Off The World's Largest Wooden Structure...

Spain's medieval city of Seville can now
not only boast that it has the world's largest wooden structure, it can be assured it's also one of the most beautiful.
The Metropol Parasol, by Jurgen Mayer Architects is now virtually complete.
Located at Plaza de la Encarnacion the beautiful series of undulating parasols comprises an interlocking honeycomb of wooden panels rising from concrete bases which form walkways beneath the stunning umbrellas.
The structure houses a museum, restaurants, farmers market, plazza and more.
And too, it defines the city's iconic cultural role as a historic archeological destination.
There's more here...
