Surrounded by traditional Britol buildings, the Bridge stands out with its blue/grey colour and futuristic looking steel structure.


Details soon revelaed how intricately and cleverly engineered the bridge is.

A self supporting structure formed solely from glu-laminated timber to reflect the green nature of the University and the outside environment. Glazed panels inserted in strips at different angles on the most exposed area of the canopy to protect students and emphasise the change of degree of the twisting structure.

Exploring Barcelona Architecture

A photographic Study of Architecture in Barcelona I visited Barcelona in October and was fascinated by the varying style of Arhitecture in the City.

I was particulaly impressed by the work of Gaudi and his sculptural style and story-telling design solutions.

Through the study of the formwork combined with my passion for photography, I captured these Images using a high grain original Nikon film camera.

Project B- Bristols Twisting Torso Harbourside Stroke Rehabilitation Centre

Retaining the theme of the world stroke organisation logo, a new site was defined on Bristol’s harbourside with a significantly smaller footprint than the original health centre. This was more of a vertical design challenge. Through the process of investigating surrounding architecture and how to build in the city, Bristols twisting torso is the answer to inner-city stroke rehabilitation.

Structural Loading Paths

FRANCESCA ROUSELL PORTFOLIO ATD3 EDITION 1

The Structural integrity of the Twisting Torso was a key problem throughout the different stages of Design. This was resolved through the use of transferable loads. By using steel beams that span across the formwork above and below each “block”, the weight of the structure can be transferred down the steel frame, yet disguised by the timber infills and cladding. The timber represents the natural form of the body, and the Concrete skin and Steel frame represents the alterations that have had to be made in order to provide stability, such as would be seen in a stroke patient.
