Our new online exhibition 'Inside the Heatherwick Studio' gives a unique and rare insight into the London-based studio’s work, capturing their spirit of discovery, invention and their convention challenging approach to design. The Heatherwick Studio is best know for some of the UK’s most iconic design projects: The Olympic Cauldron for the London 2012 Olympic Games, the New Bus for London and Seed Cathedral, the award-winning UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo in 2010. 

The Inside Heatherwick Studio exhibition is curated by Kate Goodwin, Drue Heinz Curator of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts, London and is currently touring Asia, supported by the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign. British designer and inventor Thomas Heatherwick set up the Heatherwick Studio in 1994, creating a unique design practice with a spirit of discovery and invention at it’s heart. Inside Heatherwick Studio is the inaugural part of a new campaign, New British Inventors, which celebrates pioneering British design and creates a platform for international debate about the potential of design to shape the future.
