Zaha Hadid Architects design new Mathematics Gallery

Zaha Hadid Architects have been chosen by the Science Museum to design a pioneering new mathematics gallery, made possible by the largest individual donation ever made to the museum from long-standing supporters of science David and Claudia Harding.

“With this gallery we want to evoke the kind of excitement around mathematics as our Collider exhibition has done around particle physics and with Zaha Hadid’s extraordinary designs this project is off to the best start imaginable. This appointment reflects our ambition to deliver the world’s foremost gallery of mathematics both in its collection and its design.” The permanent gallery will tell stories that place mathematics at the heart of our lives, exploring how mathematicians, their tools and ideas have helped to shape the world from the turn of the 17th century to the present.

Zaha Hadid’s pioneering practice has embodied this idea by anchoring engineering and mathematical thinking throughout their designs. David Harding has a long record of working with the Science Museum Group, both as an individual and through the business he founded, Winton Capital Management. Recent projects include support for the Collider exhibition and tour, Information Age and the Science Museum’s educational work.

The David and Claudia Harding Mathematics Gallery will open in 2016 and will be curated by David Rooney, who led the delivery of the award-winning Codebreaker exhibition about the life of Alan Turing. The Mathematics Gallery is being delivered as part of the Science Museum’s Masterplan, which will transform around a third of the museum over the next five years.
