London based Heatherwick Studio epitomises the spirit of invention of a new wave of British designers. This exhibition is a window into the studio that has become renowned for projects such as the UK Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010.
Curated by Kate Goodwin, Drue Heinz Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts, and designed by Heatherwick Studio, the exhibition offers unique insights into the ideas and experiments that go into realising projects that span architecture and engineering, as well as furniture, sculpture and product design. Drawings, models, and films from the past 20 years capture the studio’s spirit of discovery, demonstrating their imaginative and entrepreneurial approach to design.
