Official completion of Metropol Parasol
The Metropol Parasol project was completed in April 2011. The redevelopment of the Plaza de la Encarnación is a new landmark and unique urban space within the dense fabric of the medieval inner city of Seville. In June 2011, architect Jürgen Mayer H and his team from J Mayer H Architekten in Berlin celebrated the completion of Metropol Parasol at the first seated dinner to be served in the tapas bar at the top of the iconic structure. The dinner, by invitation of the main contractor, was held in the raw shell of what is to be a tapas bar.
