Bolidt & Mathematics: The Winton Gallery - Science Museum

Head Curator David Rooney: “The mathematics gallery was opened in the early seventies and in need of an update. We asked Zaha Hadid Architects to develop a completely new interior and presentation befitting the 21st century. The architecture, design and experience of The Winton Gallery are inherently mathematical in nature. The architects have designed the space as a wind tunnel, with a Handley Page aircraft suspended in the centre of the gallery. Based on mathematical equations, everything in the space represents the lines of air that would have flowed around this aircraft, from the three-dimensional structures to the gallery floor. The gallery thus tells appealing mathematical stories, while the space is a mathematical object itself.”

Bolidt advised Zaha Hadid Architects and showed them that every dream in synthetics can become reality. In both technical and design aspects, Bolidt provided input on how to bring the complex airflow design to life within the floor finish.
