# ARCHITECTURAL PROJECTS /// Metropol Parasol by Jurgen Mayer…almost finished !


Five years after the beginning of the construction, the new beautiful public space in Seville, Metropol Parasol designed by Jurgen Mayer is almost finished and will be celebrated this Sunday.
It’s interesting to observe that, although this rib-design is now seen everywhere from students projects to competitions via industrial design, this building is, as far as I know, the first one to reach this scale with this technique that consists in simulating a smooth volumes with perpendicular two dimensional extrusions.
