News: British designer Thomas Heatherwick has been awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) on the Queen's 2013 Birthday Honours list for services to the design industry.
Heatherwick launched his studio in 1994 and has since worked on several high-profile projects, from the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010 to the cauldron for the London 2012 Olympic Games and the redesign of London's iconic routemaster bus.
The Queen's Birthday Honours are announced in June each year to recognise the achievements of UK citizens. They follow the New Year Honours, announced at the start of each year, which most recently recognised industrial designer Kenneth Grange with a knighthood.
