Great chronicle of an outstanding talent.
Equal parts architect, designer and fabricator make Thomas Heatherwick one of this generation's truly exceptional creative archetypes. This book gives both the familiar and uninitiated fan an exhaustive glimpse into Heatherwick's vast body of work. His well-known projects like "The Rolling Bridge," "Seed Cathedral" and stairs at Longchamp in NYC are well represented, but could easily justify essays on themselves alone. Even failed projects like "B of the Bang" beg for more insight into the sheer engineering and logistics of such an enormous undertaking. Heatherwick is not restricted to large installations as is seen with his many projects involving "creative" use of postage that was sure to upset more than a few Royal Mail employees.Was this review helpful?

The best thing about "Making" is knowing subsequent books from this relatively young designer are bound to be just as enthralling as Heatherwick's craft evolves and progresses.
