Kathryn Findlay is the Principal Director of Ushida Findlay Architects. Gaining prominence in the nineties, the practice is known for its use of experimental design and progressive technology. This was demonstrated most recently when they were appointed as architects for Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond's ArcelorMittal Orbit, the tallest sculpture in the 2012 Olympic Park. One of Kathryn Findlay's most notable projects was the Soft and Hairy House in Japan, inspired by Salvador Dali's notion that future architecture would be 'soft and hairy'. Extending these ideas Findlay guided Crane.tv around London, showing us her favourite impermanent structures, demonstrating the adaptability of our city and the possibilities for the future. www.ushida-findlay.com
