Structural Steel Design Award, Merit

Bullring Spiral Cafe, Birmingham | Marks Barfield Architects

Based on the Fibonacci sequence, this small steel structure is a distinctive feature in the midst of a new shopping development. One of the most distinctive elements of the £500m Bullring development in Birmingham is also one of its smallest elements. 
The Spiral Cafe can be found in St Martin's Square and the judges say the constantly varying envelope of this small building provides a fascinating sculptural landmark, which sits well in this major city-centre retail area. 
In summary the judges say this gem is a testament to craftsmanship in steel.
