Metropol Parasol by J. MAYER H. Architects
Metropol Parasol, the Redevelopment of the Plaza de la Encarnacíon in Seville. Design by J. MAYER H. architects.
The Metropol Parasol scheme with its impressive timber structures offers an archaeological museum, a farmers market, an elevated plaza, multiple bars and restaurants underneath and inside the parasols, as well as a panorama terrace on the very top of the parasols. Realized as one of the largest and most innovative bonded timber-constructions with a polyurethane coating, the parasols grow out of the archaeological excavation site into a contemporary landmark, defining a unique relationship between the historical and the contemporary city. Metropol Parasols mix-used character initiates a dynamic development for culture and commerce in the heart of Seville and beyond.
