The screen block was a trendy must-have from the late 1950s through the 1960s especially in climates where the challenges of sun protection called for architectural solutions. The screen block has its origins in the wooden grilles found in Moorish and Hindu architecture. And this is exactly what I love so much -- they create an exotic, elegant flair and are at the same time understated.

The German architect J. Mayer has installed an astonishing ‘Parasol’ constructed mainly from wood that is remarkable held together by glue. This re-development of Seville’s 'Plaza de la Encarnation’ is housing a museum, farmers market, bars and restaurants… stunning. I love how this design is mimicking alien shapes and at the same time complimenting the original architecture of Seville…!
