Tourists who come to Spain should visit Sevilla’s icon, the largest wooden structure in the world called The Metropol Parasol that undoubtedly turns heads. Its size is 150 x 70 meters. This huge structure covers restaurants, bars, a plaza, archaeological site and farmer’s market. Besides, there is a panorama deck at the top of it from which you can enjoy amazing views of Sevilla.

Too bad they had to cut down trees for that instead of using some recycled composites.

^ good point ^

also, that structure presents huge surface area, which would be a massive weather-proofing headache AFAIK.

Apparently those who called this the largest wooden structure in the world have never been to the Tillamook Air Museum. It is 1,072 feet (327 m) long and 296 feet (90 m) wide and 192 feet (59 m) tall. You could put 2 Metropol Parasols inside of it.
