Transforming materials and space in unprecedented ways, Thomas Heatherwick’s projects fuse engineering, sculpture, design, and architecture into otherworldly, awe-inspiring creations. From the Rolling Bridge (2004) in London that unfurls beneath pedestrians’ feet, to the shimmering anemone-like U.K. Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo, Heatherwick creates organic forms that transform public spaces. Aside from his large-scale urban projects, Heatherwick has made forays into residential landscaping, designed handbags and furniture, and re-imagined London’s red double-decker buses.
