ZAHA HADID ARCHITECTS OPEN MATHEMATICS GALLERY

Based inside London’s science museum, a mathematics gallery has now opened thanks to Zaha Hadid Architects – featuring a wide spread over over 100 pieces from engineering, science and all things under the mathematics umbrella. The aim is to showcase just how much maths is involved in everyone’s life.  

from a beautiful 17th century islamic astrolabe that uses ancient mathematical techniques to map the night sky, to an early example of the famous enigma machine, designed to resist even the most advanced mathematical techniques for code breaking during the second world war, each historic object within the gallery has an important story to tell,’explains ZHA





The space marks the first permanent project in the UK since Zaha Hadid’s passing earlier this year – its definitely a gallery worth visiting.
