Metropol Parasol was opened in spring 2011.

"The parasols are constructed of timber plates finished with a polyurethane coating — the project is partially funded by the largest European contractor of advanced wooden structures and timber & glass cladding, finnforest-merk (FFM). This mesh-like wooden structure will provide shade below, creating a microclimate that encourages urban activity and community engagement. J. Mayer H. won a competition back in 2004 to design the project, and he was assisted by Arup on the engineering side. "

Laminated wood panels come from Finland, carved in Germany! Excellent material for loudspeakers!
