Sculptural steel tower unveiled in Gloucester

Structural engineer Toby Savage Design this month unveiled its large steel sculpture Kyneburgh Tower in Gloucester, a complex steel structure featuring 60 horizontal irregular hoop elements.

The tower is the centrepiece of the regeneration of Kimbrose Square, a transformed area of new public space in Gloucester, and uses an open-slatted structure to create a moiré effect. The horizontal steel elements are spaced and supported by three pairs of vertical leg elements.
