J.Mayer h. architects: Metropol parasol



I have been closely following the construction of j. mayer h. architects,
‘metropol parasol’, a project that is now complete. set to open on march 27th,
the concrete and parasol structure will become an icon and urban center for seville,
articulating the city as a cultural destination.


the largely open-air volume houses a variety of programs, including a museum,
farmers market, elevated plaza and restaurant, and is intended as a place that will
activate the public square, making it attractive for both tourists and locals.

a dense fabric of organically woven and undulating panels compose the space and
starkly contrast the medieval environment that surrounds it. realized as one of the
largest and most innovative timber constructions of our time, the parasols grow out
of the archaeological site into a contemporary landmark and symbol that defines the
integration of tradition and modernism.

    The decor on the inside of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful.

    Anna had been looking through my phone while I was naked. They feature almost nightly drink specials and some form of entertainment every night of the week–DJ’s, live music, trivia, you name it.
