Visionary designer Thomas Heatherwick has been called the “Leonardo da Vinci of our times”. From his London studio have come the 2012 Olympic Games cauldron, a revamp of London’s double-decker Routemaster bus, a Seed Cathedral and creations all over the world that combine beauty with thought, process and function.

In Thomas Heatherwick: Making the founder of Heatherwick Studio asks how you make someone eat your business card, grow a meadow in the centre of a city, or generate the form of a building in less than a minute.
