The new £5 million David and Claudia Harding Mathematics Gallery by Zaha Hadid is set to explore "the many influences of mathematics in our everyday lives"  according to Hadid – and is to become a permanent addition to the Science Museum, as part of its planned £60 million redevelopment.

Scheduled to open in 2016, the new Zaha Hadid-designed space will tell the story of mathematics from the 17th century up to present day  with each architectural element executed in Hadid's signature futuristic style. 

"The design explores the many influences of mathematics in our everyday lives; transforming seemingly abstract mathematical concepts into an exciting interactive experience for visitors of all ages," stated Hadid, who has also recently been selected to design a trio of skyscrapers for Brisbane.
