Spain’s Metropol Parasol structure a knock-out!

Having just been bowled over by the 6-photo slideshow of Seville, Spain’s new Metropol Parasol, I want to be certain you’ve snagged a peek at the new and creative architectural marvel, if you haven’t.

Since its completion in April 2011, we now know where to find the ‘world’s largest wooden urban structure’ and it is a show-stopping beauty of a sculptured building of cross-hatched wood over steel in the most graceful of forms. And the Parasol has practical uses for city dwellers and tourists of Seville as Uranian genius pours into Saturnian form!

Plato’s Ideal? Seems very close to me but really you should decide for yourself.

Experientially, it looks like walking underneath a giant wooden mushroom! (As if I actually know what such a thing would look like. Well, now I do.)

And please don’t be dissuaded from taking a peek at the photos by the fact that ‘parasol’, ‘rain’, and ‘rain man’ are related symbols of the sort of largess that tends to come with too many strings attached.

No, let’s not go there.

But do let us run away to Seville to bask under the Metropol Parasol!

A fuller view of my drawing ‘Shroom Trio may be found in the current ‘Mad Majicks’ issue of Emerging Visions e-zine and you’re cordially invited to check out all the Art and Poetry!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
