Maybe it's because I've been watching the Tour de France every evening
and, now that it's over, I want more of the excitement of new scenery...
Whatever it is, I have itchy feet... I really want to set off on an adventure;
explore a new city....
So I guess it's rather timely that I web-hopped upon this architectural
wonder in Seville, Spain, completed in April 2011... Metropol Parasol.
Don't you just love the way it pops out from all the
box shapes of the city's architect?
Designed by J.Mayer H Architects, it's part of a re-development project for the
Plaza de la Encarnacion, formerly an archeological site.
I just love it's organic form...
As an entity in itself I find it so incredibly inspiring and uplifting.
Luckily for the locals it also has some functions with an archeological
museum, a farmers market and bars and restaurants included in the mix ;)
Can't you just see yourself strolling through, or coming upon
the parasols when wandering down a narrow laneway?
I haven't been to Seville since 1994... it's on the list now.
Have you travelled there recently? Have you seen the Parasols?
I'd love to hear what you think.
