Las Setas de Sevilla

Las Setas de Sevilla The Metropol Parasol, commonly known as Las Setas de Sevilla, is a building in the shape of a wooden and concrete pergola that is situated in the city's main Plaza de la Encarnación in Seville, Andalusia (Spain). Its measurements are 150 meters long, 70 meters broad, and around 26 meters tall. The archaeological museum Antiquarium, a performance square, and a typical market and eateries are all located at the base of the building. The building's roof has a terrace and a lookout point with a wide-angle view of the old town. The piece, which is primarily made of laminated wood, consists of a sizable grid that encloses both the city's Plaza de la Encarnación and Plaza Mayor and is supported by six pillars. Each of its ribs creates a spatial distribution with its own unique curvature, giving the overall appearance of wave motion. Although the Cathedral of Seville's vaults served as inspiration for its architecture, the building's fungiform profile quickly earned it the nickname "Las Setas" from the locals.
