Working across multiple scales, locations and typologies, Heatherwick Studio has developed into a team of 200 makers and inventors with no signature style. Lead by human experience rather than any fixed dogma, the studio creates emotionally compelling places and objects with the smallest possible climate shadow. From their studios in London and Shanghai, the team is currently working on over 30 projects in ten countries, including the new Changi Airport Terminal 5 with KPF, the new headquarters for Google in London in collaboration with Bjarke Ingels Group and a performing arts centre in Hainan. The studio has also recently completed Azabudai Hills, a six-hectare mixed-use development in the centre of Tokyo; Bay View and Gradient Canopy, Google’s first purpose-built campuses in California; Little Island, a park and performance space on the Hudson River in New York; as well as the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa in Cape Town; and Coal Drops Yard, a major retail district in King’s Cross, London. Thomas’ book, Humanise, was published by Penguin in October 2023.
