Metropol Parasol in Seville

Designed by J. MAYER H. architects, this “Metropol Parasol” is a central courtyard that becomes the new contemporary urban centre. Its role as a unique urban space within the dense fabric of the medieval inner city of Seville allows for a great variety of activities such as memory, leisure and commerce. A highly developed infrastructure helps to activate the square, making it an attractive destination for tourists and locals alike.

It looks crazy out-of-place in this ancient city of Seville, but I’m in awe of their sense of adventure to build something cool and modern like this instead of a fake antiquity.
