Today's archidose #497

The Metropol Parasol in Seville, Spain by J. Mayer H., 2011. Be sure to check out the special feature on the urban space project in Domus 947 (May 2011), with an article and video both including visual contributions by Pedro Kok.

  1. Perhaps you saw that today's events in Spain prominently featured the Parasol:

    Nobody Expects the Spanish Revolution (post on BoingBoing, third image).

  2. Delicious!
    If I do it, I might use reflective glass to make it look lighter, but Mayer's innovative way of using the waffle structure and precast concrete panel give it more unique texture, brilliant!

    Thanks to Wilecount's link, it is interesting to see how the structure host a public gathering, I believe it must be an unique experience for people there.

  3. Refreshingly new article. I must applaud your creativity dude…how can you ever think that something as common as this can do
