My third installment of All Things English…

I can’t wait to check out the East Beach Cafe in the small seaside town of Littlehampton.  This extraordinary fish ‘n chips hut looks like nothing you have ever seen before… or have you?!?!

This restaurant was designed by Thomas Heatherwick, a British renaissance man who takes credit for designing loads of things including handbags, shop interiors, bridges, Japanese temples and 56-meter tall sculptures.  Even more shocking than some of his designs is the fact that he has never had proper architectural training aside from that found on-the-job.

The East Beach Cafe is so extraordinary it was nominated for the Brit Insurance Design of the Year Awards which is the Design Museum of London’s annual exhibition and awards program.
