On 8 December 2016 the Science Museum will open an inspirational new mathematics gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.
Mathematics: The Winton Gallery highlights the central role of mathematical science in all our lives, which enabled to build the modern world over the past four centuries the way it is now, through remarkable stories, historical artefacts and design.
More than 100 exhibits from the Science Museum’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics collections have been selected to tell stories about how mathematics has influenced our most fundamental human concerns – from trade and travel to war, peace, life, death, form and beauty.
Ian Blatchford, Director of the Science Museum Group, said, “We were hugely impressed by the ideas and vision of the late Dame Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher when they first presented their design for the new mathematics gallery over two years ago. It was a terrible shock for us all when Dame Zaha died suddenly in March this year, but I am sure that this gallery will be a lasting tribute to this world-changing architect and provide inspiration for our millions of visitors for many years to come.”
Mathematics: The Winton Gallery is the first permanent public museum exhibition designed by Zaha Hadid Architects anywhere in the world. More information is here.
