Polyurethane used to coat new city landmark

The Metropol Parasol in Seville is finally complete! The new building is officially the world’s largest wooden structure. The huge complex includes a museum, a farmers market, an elevated plaza, and a restaurant, most of which are open-air. Its elevated rooftop promenades, located on top of the parasol, offer visitors amazing views of the city.

The Parasol was designed by Jurgen Mayer H. Architects and is made from bonded timber with a polyurethane coating. It is finished in a neutral tone which helps to harmonise the stark contrast between its ultra-modern structure and the medieval surroundings of Seville. Polyurethane is ideal for the purpose. As well as having excellent adhesion properties, it is water resistant, durable and brings out the natural beauty of the wood.
