Thomas Heatherwick is one of the UK’s leading creative talents. Since establishing his studio in 1994 Heatherwick and his colleagues have refused to be categorised within traditional boundaries and their work extends across art, architecture, product design and beyond. Today, a highly talented team of architects, designers and makers operate from a studio and workshop in King’s Cross, London – a unique environment where project management and implementation take place in parallel with experimentation with ideas, materials and manufacturing processes. Completed projects include the RIBA National award-winning East Beach Café; Longchamp’s La Maison Unique flagship store in New York and the internationally renowned Rolling Bridge in London. In addition to the UK Pavilion for the Shanghai Expo, Heatherwick Studio is currently working on a major redevelopment of Pacific Place (one of Hong Kong’s most established and well respected shopping malls) and is working with a dynamic community of monks on the design for a new monastery.
