Thomas Heatherwick: "the Leonardo of our Times" (Terence Conran) Anthea Streeter Wednesday 06 March 2019

Thomas Heatherwick is a British designer and architect who has won many awards and honours.  He won a gold medal for his British Pavilion at Shanghai Expo in 2010 and was designer of the year in Japan in the same year.  The Olympic Cauldron of Heatherwick and his studio team was a memorable sight at the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.  In the same year his new red Routemaster bus was launched.  Among the team's architectural projects, the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art, South Africa opened in 2017.  The lecture will highlight Heatherwick's broad range of design.

Whilst at Harvard she herself became interested in 20th century architecture and design. Following her return from the States, she has taught on courses in Oxford and London.
