Thomas Heatherwick — The pingmag interview

11thomasheatherwick

Thomas Heatherwick is no stranger to bookofjoe: back on October 29, 2004 I duly reported on his sensational Folding Footbridge in London.

Heatherwick describes himself as a "three–dimensional designer."

Here's a link to this past Tuesday's superb pingmag interview, which itself is chock full of excellent links that will allow you to easily explore in greater depth the work of this singular designer.

pingmag focused on Heatherwick's latest commission, a request by a Japanese Buddhist priest to build a temple in the South of Japan.

Heatherwick used a fabric model (below)

to create the final design of the temple (top).
