Artist's impression of the Science Museum's new mathematics gallery

From The Guardian:

As part of a wider plan that will redevelop a third of the museum over the next three years, the Science Museum, London has announced a new exhibit to open in late 2016 focusing on mathematical ideas. The layout of the gallery itself is inspired by the math behind aerodynamics: a plane will be suspended from the ceiling and the position of the displays will follow the lines of aerodynamic flow around it. The exhibit will “tell the 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.”
