One of the most impressive pavilions at the Shanghai World Expo 2010 was the UK Pavilion, designed by Thomas Heatherwick. In this book, we can see not only the impressive pavilion, but also a comprehensive overview covering the studio’s entire history. Over 150 projects are represented, each fully illustrated with images selected from Heatherwick’s personal and studio archives.
More information after the break.
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.
