Thomas Heatherwick founded Heatherwick studio in 1994 to bring the practices of design, architecture and urban planning together in a single workspace.
Heatherwick leads the design of all Heatherwick Studio projects, working in collaboration with a team of 200 highly-skilled architects, designers, and makers. Based in London, Heatherwick studio is currently working in four continents on projects valued at over £2 billion. Following the success of the UK Pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo in 2010, Heatherwick studio has gone on to win exciting design briefs including the Learning Hub at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, and the new Google campus in Silicon Valley.
Heatherwick has been appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, a Royal Academician and, in 2004, became the youngest Royal Designer for Industry.
