Seville's Metropol Parasol, the World's Largest Wooden Structure, is now complete. Made from bonded timber the modern structure is a definite contrast to the medieval architecture in Spain. The project started in 2004 and is located in the Plaza de la Encarnación as a way to revamp the square. Visitors can get a closer look by dining at the rooftop restaurant, strolling the winding walkway, or checking out the viewing gallery which is open 24/7. Its architect, Jürgen Mayer, is known for his digital design techniques which he used in planning - no two parts of the Parasol are alike. 

A fascinating structure, unexpectedly integrated in the heart of Seville.
