Heatherwick heads to Teesside to design biomass power station


Failure's not something to be afraid of... regrettably I think that was precisely the mentality of the investment bankers a few years back (and probably still is). I have no objections to anyone trying the impossible with their own budgets - be it in the interests of research, or, as is more commonly the case with architects and designers, to flaunt their largesse, or boost their profile or ego, be it building or sculpture. My caveat to that is: so long as it going wrong - doesn't a) kill anyone or b) end up having to put right out fo the public purse.
