The World’s Largest Wooden Structure Now Open For Business

The Metropol Parasol, located in Seville, Spain, just opened its doors to the public and is the world's largest wooden structure. Some pragmatically-minded city planners originally wanted to build a parking garage on the site, then they discovered some artifacts of archaeological significance and opted to build a museum/shopping center instead.

From the looks of it, the roof is the best part—you can actually go up there and check out views of the entire city.
