    The book is based in a reversed chromology narrative so it is actually of a cvportfolio that you buy The language is simple and unfortunately the concepts not really deep but its ok Heatherwick's work seems to be really unexpected contextless to be precise and this is why is seems to stand out The book is rich and really deserves to be read though someone will realize that there are lots of repetitions and recyclings of concepts

    It is all about Thomas Heatherwick's experiments of shapes and materials how to build those shapes Constantly studying materials and trying to make shapes whatever he wants are key sources to create great objects including big scales of architectures

    ¿Se puede hacer diseño contestando preguntas? Pues precisamente para Thomas Heatherwhick de eso se trata el diseño y este maravilloso monográfico lo demuestra con gran aciertoPresentando más de 120 proyectos sí ¡más de 120 este prolífico diseñador Inglés hace alarde de su metodología de diseño Presentados en orden cronológico los proyectos permiten ver la evolución de uno de los pilares del diseño Inglés contemporáneo y demuestran su indiscutible capacidad para innovar de una manera poco común en el mundo del diseño industrial contemporáneoHoy en día el estudio de Thomas es un gran euipo interdisciplinario y los encargos ue recibe vienen de todas partes del mundo y muchos de ellos son de gran envergadura pero es fácil suponer ue no siempre fue así Lo ue este aruitectodiseñador logra plasmar en su monográfico es la tremenda coherencia entre lo ue hizo como estudiante universitario y lo ue presentó al mundo en la feria mundial en Shanghái durante las olimpiadas y ahora ue el nuevo autobús de dos pisos ue circula por LondresPensar ue este talentoso diseñador nació sólo en 1970 y ha recorrido un brillante camino deja ver como ha sido productivo Algo es seguro Heatherwhick ha contestado muchas preguntas; y vaya ue ha dado las respuestas ¡correctas
