The Worlds Largest Wooden Structure opens in Spain

A sprawling four-storey wooden structure that is believed to be the largest of its kind just opened in Seville, Spain in April, after six years of construction, reports Yatzer.

The Parasol, which occupies some 18,000 square meters of space, is part of the redevelopment plans of the Plaza de la Encarnacion in Seville. Its undulating, weaving roof was designed to be an icon for the Spanish city, the architecture firm responsible for the structure, J Mayer H Architects, said.

Its role as a unique urban space within the dense fabric of the medieval inner city of Seville allows for a greater variety of activities such as memory, leisure and commerce, the architects said.

The structure will be used as an archaelogical site, farmers market, elevated plaza as well as a space for bars and restaurants, according to Yatzer. MORE
