Plus Advent Calendar Door #6: Maths takes flight

Layout of the new gallery

The layout of the new maths gallery, which opened at the Science Museum, London, in 2016.

If you're looking for a fun outing this holidays, why not step inside an abstract mathematical space! You can do just this in the maths gallery at the Science Museum in London.

In this podcast from 2015, just before the gallery opened, we talked to Shajay Bhooshan from Zaha Hadid Architects, the lead designer on the project, about how you create a mathematical space, and the role of maths in design and architecture.

You can read more about the gallery in the accompanying news story.
