Zaha Hadid Architects Carries on with London Science Museum’s Mathematics Gallery


Quick, what color do you think of when forced to contemplate the finite nature of our time on this earth?

If your first guess was ‘purple’, you’ve definitely got something in common with the late, great architect Zaha Hadid–or at least with the firm that bears her name.

Purple is the theme at a new Mathematics gallery designed by Zaha Hadid Architects for the London Science Museum, slated to open to the public tomorrow, December 8th.

The exhibit tells “the story of how mathematics shaped our world” and does it with a lot of purple and swooping canopies. We can’t tell much from looking at early photos, but we do know there’s a station for “Life and Death”, as well as for “Trade and Travel.” Math has never seemed so exciting.
