Rolling bridges, kinetic cauldrons and spinning chairs: Capturing the creative design process at Heatherwick Studio

Alice O’Hanlon leads the collection and care of the studio’s design legacy of Thomas Heatherwick at the Heatherwick Studio Archives.

Established in 1994, Heatherwick Studio is recognised for its work in architecture, urban infrastructure, sculpture, design and strategic thinking and employs a team of over 190 architects, designers and makers.

Using physical examples from the archive, Alice will talk about the challenges and opportunities presented by working as an archivist in a live design studio. This work includes caring for a wide range of 2D and 3D materials, overseeing the development of a digital preservation strategy, and assisting with the selection of archival objects for loan to external galleries and exhibitions.

Refreshments provided. Advance booking is essential.
Free to all AfL members. Non-members welcome, £6 (booking from 21 April).
Please book your place through Eventbrite.
