‘the intention is not to persuade others to adopt any single approach to design or to promote any one philosophy but only to try to explain the thinking that went into each project and tell the story of how our ideas developed.’ – thomas heatherwick, author and architect

content this volume demonstrates the evolution of methodologies, product design, installations and buildings produced by the london-based firm, heatherwick studio over a time span of two decades. presented in a chronological format and subdivided by documentation of their annual christmas card tradition, this compilation introduces the experimental techniques and processes involved in the generation and implementation of their expansive portfolio.

documented with initial sketches, drawings, renderings and detailed photographs taken during both phases of production and completion, this colorful depiction shows the broad expanse of their practice’s work.

is it for me? if you are interested in expanding your knowledge of materials, fabrication and construction techniques for projects at a variety of scales, then this book is for you.
