Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first retrospective publication on the work of award-winning designer Thomas Heatherwick (the subject of a 2012 exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum) offers an in-depth look at all aspects of the innovator's creative, design, and manufacturing processes.

Heatherwick is known as one of the greatest innovators of our era, and for the first time, this publication provides an inside look at the creation and development of his projects. It answers the one question always asked of Heatherwick's work: How did he do that?

The book covers the studio's complete output over more than fifteen years—some 170 projects—including designs large and small: zippered bags that can be expanded to five times their size, a bridge that rolls open and closed, the in-progress one-million-square-foot mall in Hong Kong and glass bridge in London.

About the Author

THOMAS HEATHERWICK holds a degree in three-dimensional design from the Royal College of Art, London, and established Heatherwick Studio in 1994. He is an honorary fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects and the recipient of honorary doctorates from four British universities. He was awarded the Prince Philip Designers Prize and, in 2006, was the youngest practitioner to be appointed a Royal Designer for Industry.
