Blueprint Awards judges: Thomas Heatherwick

Blueprint editor Johnny Tucker gives us a debrief on the judging panel for the Blueprint Awards 2015.

Thomas Heatherwick has a long and distinguished design pedigree, but probably entered the public consciousness, with his Shanghai Expo Seed Cathedral UK pavilion in 2010 and his two key London projects in 2012: the cauldron torch for the London Olympics and the new Routemaster bus. He is also behind the new garden bridge over the Thames and most recently the Nanyang University Learning Hub in Singapore, which you can read about in the new Blueprint 340. He now heads up the 170-person strong Heatherwick Studio.

The deadline of June 30, 2015, is fast approaching so start collating your entry now. Find everything you need to know about entering at the Blueprint Awards website.
