Metropol Parasol - The World's Largest Wooden Structure

The Metropol Parasol in Seville, Spain is the largest wooden structure in the world. Designed by J. Mayer H. Architects, the monumental structure provides shade for Roman ruins, a museum, and businesses below its canopy, while pedestrians can walk along rooftop promenades. Its size is 150 x 70 meters. Photos don’t do it justice–this aerial video of the Metropol Parasol at the end of the page by giraldatv gives a sense of its scale.
