It’s Las Setas de Sevilla.
The official name is the Metropol Parasol Project. The locals call it the Las Setas de Sevilla, which means “the mushrooms of Seville.”
Construction began on March 6, 2006, and was completed on May 6, 2011. According to its website, it:
- is the largest wooden structure in the world
- has a footprint of 150×70 meters (492×230 ft)
- is over 28 meters (92 ft) tall
- “contains 3,500 parts joined by nearly 3,000 knots and screws 16M. In total, 3,500 cubic meters of raw wood finish pine micro-laminate (KERTO) coated waterproof, breathable and flexible polyurethane.”
In other words, it’s big and there are lots of pieces.
And it’s beautiful. See what you think:
