Zaha Hadid to create London Science Museum's new maths gallery
Strength in numbers
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.
