A controversial building

The Metropol Parasol project by architect Jürgen Mayer, who was the most expensive of all, was selected by the town council of Seville to occupy the site of the old market of La Encarnación and revitalising the Plaza de la Encarnación, for years used as a parking lot.

The building contains a market, shops, and a podium for concerts and events. In its basement are the ruins of a Roman district, with mosaics and structures of buildings. On the roof there is a restaurant, a viewing gallery, and a undulating walkway from which to appreciate the views of the city.

The architect says the forms of his building were inspired by the vaults of Seville's cathedral and also by the handsome trees already in the square.
