Mathematics: The Winton Gallery
Mathematics: The Winton Gallery tells the story of how mathematics has shaped our world. Designed by the world-renowned Zaha Hadid Architects, this outstanding new gallery spans 400 years of human ingenuity and brings mathematical history to life through the design and architecture of its displays.
Conceived as a wind tunnel for the largest object in the gallery – a Handley Page aircraft from 1929 – the space follows the lines of airflow around it in a stunning display of imagined aerodynamics. Other objects in the gallery range from intriguing hand-held mathematical instruments to 19th-century human skulls, covering a time-span from the Renaissance to the present day.
This exceptional new gallery has been made possible by the largest individual donation ever made to the Science Museum, an incredible £5 million gift from David and Claudia Harding.
