"What I wanted was the most beautiful piece of sculpture in Europe and I think that's what we have here with Slipstream.' -John Holland-Kaye, Heathrow Development Director

In 2010, Heathrow ran an international arts competition to find an ambitious public artwork for the Covered Court, architect Luis Vidal's grand entrance to the new Terminal 2 : The Queen's Terminal, which would provide a 'cultural gateway to London' for the expected 20 million visitors a year.

The winner was Richard Wilson RA, whose sculpture encapsulating the imagined flight path of an aerobatics aircraft now shimmers in the lights of the Covered Court, providing a monument to the spirit of collaboration, British ingenuity and the increasing popularity of contemporary art in 'museums without walls'.

This book traces Slipstream's epic journey from inception through to the reality of an artwork that links together the technological age with the golden era of aviation, a joyful celebration of the spirit of 21-st century flight. It is a story of creativity, cutting-edge design, engineering and construction all bonded together by extraordinary teamwork and dedication.

The book contains films, audio interviews with Richard Wilson, moveable 3D models and an extensive gallery of previously unseen images documenting Slipstream from conception to completion.

Lovely stuff

It’s pretty hefty to download (over 1Gb) but it is totally worth it. Gorgeous high quality images, interesting films (lots!) and even 3D stuff you can play with. This is probably the best way to experience the sculpture if you can’t make it to Heathrow.

Beautiful to look at and use

A fantastic way to learn more about this epic sculpture and Richard's work. Loved the videos and visuals of the work in development.
Highly recommended!!


Really fantastic way to find out more about an inspirational new public sculpture.
