thomas heatherwick's TED talk
A pedestrian bridge that curls up like a caterpillar; a power plant
"where you could actually have a bar mitzvah"; a building designed like a
giant fiber-optic pincushion. Thomas Heatherwick's work is stunningly imaginative. In this TED talk,
the London architect discusses some of his recent projects, explaining
buildings that may look like sculptural follies but are, in fact, rather practical
answers to specific design problems. --b.d.s.
