The imaginative and wide-ranging work of Britain's Heatherwick Studio may still be little-known in America, but a traveling exhibition aims to change that.
Heatherwick is more prominent in London, where his projects have included the mechanical cauldron used in the 2012 Olympics; it consisted of dozens of small petal-shaped torches — one for each nation — that dramatically rose and joined together forming a single flame.
In the United States, his only major completed work is the interior remodel of the Longchamp store in Manhattan, which features an unusual, ribbon-like staircase and a clear, slumped, glass handrail.
Heatherwick is behind the dramatic design for Pier55 in Manhattan, featuring an undulating park landscape, outdoor theater and performance spaces, all built on enormous concrete piles.
The exhibit looks at 43 projects through prototypes, presentation and sketch models, full-scale mock-ups, objects, photos and video footage.
The show features a pair of seats (with Heatherwick-designed fabric) and a full-scale mock-up of the new bus' rear section (the studio's answer to "Can a London bus be better and use 40 percent less fuel?").
About 2.4 billion people — or roughly one-third of the world’s population — still lack access to proper toilets, according to a report published Tuesday by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
The study warns that progress on sanitation is falling short of the targets outlined in the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals, even though significant improvements have been made in related areas including access to safe drinking water.

The accounting firm’s CEO, Vassilis Bagourdis, had been up since dawn, nervously puffing at cigarillos and trying to figure out what the capital controls could mean: Had Greek banks at last run out of money?
