Reclaim The Car Parks #3: Metropol Parasol, Seville, Spain
An amazing building (see picture in the Guardian) has just been unveiled in Seville, Spain. The Metropol Parasol is on the site of what used to be a covered market, which was demolished and turned into a car park in 1973. Now, the Metropol Parasol, the world’s largest wooden structure, houses a museum with Roman excavations, a covered market, an elevated plaza with bars and restaurants, where people can watch a concert, play or sporting event, a panorama deck and a Sky Café. Shame about the cars.
