This is such a stunning project. I have to visit sometime in the future.

Do you have any aerial pictures of it completed + the rest of the city to get a feeling of the size of it?

I love it! It's beautiful. From the photos and looking at Google Earth, I'd say it's perfect, brilliant planning and design!

Do the locals love it? Is it an improvement on what was previously there? And what happened to the car parking plan?

I guess there were objections from local businesses and property owners nearby about shadows cast by the building? How do people feel about that now?

Some locals love it and some locals hate it. But since it´s finished more and more local people is apreciating Metropol Parasol.

For over thirty years there was nothing. In 1973 was demolish a farmers market. It was planned rebuilding it but projects were not carry out because of different problems. Perhaps the most important problem was that when they were building the underground parking appeared a lot of archaeological remains, most of them Roman. So they had to drop the car parking and find a new project to integrate the archaeological remains.

There is no problems about the shadows Seville is a city where the shadow is warm thanks. Most of the criticisms of local people came to build a very modern building in the heart of the historic city.

Redevelopments in Seville bring new life to the city centre

After near 30 years of neglect, the centrally located square Plaza de la Encarnación was redeveloped. The city government of Seville organised an open competition in 2004, which was won by the team Juergen Mayer H and Arup.

The original concept integrated an archaeological museum incorporating the Roman ruins found on site, a food market which 30 years ago was based in the square, an elevated plaza and a high-level café. The highlight however are the six mushroom-shaped timber shading structures, called Parasols, which with a size of 150 x 75 m and a height of 30 m cover the entire square and envelop the afore mentioned uses. Furthermore, at high level there is a café, viewing platforms and walkways, from which views of the entire city of Seville...
