Its official. Thomas Heatherwick has been awarded the London Design Medal! I can’t think of a more deserving winner. He’s talented, pushes boundaries like few of his generation and a thoroughly nice bloke to boot!
Thomas Heatherwick commented:
“It’s a huge honour and a great surprise to be given the London Design Medal. London is the city I was born and brought up in; an endlessly exciting mish-mash of a place that inspires me and my team in the projects we do.”
