Giant timber parasols above the Plaza de la Encarnacíon in Seville – this sunday the Berlin based architectural practice Jürgen Mayer H. can finally unveil their most recent urban development project – a new icon for the medieval inner city of Andalusia’s capital. The timber-constructions 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.

“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.”
