In conversation: Thomas Heatherwick and Dezeen editor Marcus Fairs
August 29, 2019 • 7:00 pm PDT
Thomas Heatherwick is famed for ingenious designs that seem to combine a steampunk love of moving contraptions with material and spatial exploration, like the newly opened Vessel, above; London Transport’s bendy buses and the Olympic Cauldron at the London Olympics. Heatherwick drops into LA this week for a conversation with Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs. The chat will take place in the The Second Home Serpentine Pavilion at La Brea Tar Pits (designed by Selgascano). Expect topics to include the new Google HQ in Silicon Valley as well as “the future of the city, the impact of the virtual realm, and how to create meaningful public spaces that bring people together.”
