Building: Guys Approches at Guy’s Hospital
Location: London, UK (by London Bridge)
Completed: 2007
Architect: Heatherwick Studio (Thomas Heatherwick)

AE Interest: tiled cladding system wrapping around the boiler house fabricated from high grade stainless steel frames, with braid woven through as the “warp”

The building was built on a raft that allows it to sit above the soft clay in a more efficient manner than traditional foundation piles.
