At London's Victoria & Albert Museum, something pointy greets you. Thomas Heatherwick created a hanging canopy of 208 traffic cones suspended from steel cable over the entrance. Inside, you can see more work from Heatherwick, including a model of his impressive copper-petaled Olympic Cauldron. The exhibit runs through September 30.
