工作室由Thomas Heatherwick在1994年成立, 而宗旨是專注如何在追求藝術感同時尋求創新的設計方法, 研發可塑性高的物料和更佳的人手製造方法。所以他們「大膽假設, 小心求證」。這20年來, Heatherwick在世界各地工作, 當中不少備受天然環境所控制, 他們慢慢從中累積經驗, 學懂如何處理備受自然環境限制的設計工程, 變得更專業, 更全面。
Established by Thomas Heatherwick in 1994, at the heart of the studio’s work is a profound commitment to finding innovative design solutions, with a dedication to artistic thinking and the latent potential of materials and craftsmanship. This is achieved through a working methodology of collaborative rational inquiry, undertaken in a spirit of curiosity and experimentation. In the twenty years of its existence, Heatherwick Studio has worked in many countries, with a wide range of commissioners and in a variety of regulatory environments. Through this experience, the studio has acquired a high level of expertise in the design and realisation of unusual projects, with a particular focus on the large scale.
