Thomas Heatherwick is the founder of Heatherwick Studio, an architecture and design firm established in 1994 with the mission “to bring architecture, design and sculpture together within a single practice”. On the team are architects, landscape architects, designers and engineers who work from a combined studio and workshop, where concept development, detailing, prototyping and small-scale fabrication take place. The Heatherwick Studio’s portfolio includes commercial and residential building projects, master planning, infrastructure schemes and high-profile works of public commissions including the astonishing Seed Cathedral for the UK Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010 and the Nanyang Technological University Learning Hub, Singapore. This talk accompanies the exhibition New British Inventors: Inside Heatherwick Studio at the National Design Centre.
