Bristol Royal Infirmary facade design winner announced


The winning design to transform the "ugly" facade of the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) has been revealed.
'Veil' by Madrid-based Nieto Sobejano was selected from a shortlist of three by the NHS Foundation Trust.
The design involves a new cladding and the creation of a small open garden as part of an £80m programme of work, due to be completed in 2014.
Robert Woolley, from the trust, said the next step was to "ensure we have the funds to realise the design".
University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust decided to overhaul the building's frontage after discovering structural work was necessary to make it safe in the long-term.
It launched a competition at the end of last year. Six international artists and architects put forward designs to improve the appearance of the BRI, which were shortlisted to three in March
