As part of a season of events celebrating British design, the V&A presents the first major solo exhibition exploring the work of one of the most inventive design studios practicing today. Heatherwick Studio: Designing the Extraordinary reveals the creative processes and spirit of curiosity of Thomas Heatherwick and his studio through projects spanning the disciplines of architecture, furniture, and product design, to engineering, sculpture, and urban planning.

Heatherwick Studio has earned a renowned international profile with projects including the pedestrian Rolling Bridge in Paddington Basin, the glass Bleigiessen installation for the Wellcome Trust, and the Teesside biomass-fueled power station. This exhibition brings together over 150 objects of inspiration and material samples, models, prototypes, full-scale fragments, and finished pieces: from an original seed-tipped rod from the UK Pavilion Seed Cathedral at the Shanghai World Expo, to a detail of the new London double-decker bus at full-scale.
