The Science Museum has opened a new gallery designed by Zaha Hadid Architects called 'Mathematics: The Winton Gallery'.

Arup provided all of the engineering design and the lighting design for the gallery.

Fluid lighting was integrated with static lighting to showcase the mathematical significance of a full size 1929 Handley Page aircraft – a key feature of the gallery. The lighting scheme follows the aerodynamic field of the plane, and the main generative element is the propeller of the plane, which determines the motion.

"We aimed to make the lighting in the gallery as ‘visitor experience’ focused as possible. We created a memorable space using different lighting techniques to depict turbulence and flow lines. This was an exceptional project to be part of. We have been able to highlight complex principles of mathematics and physics in a spectacular way,” said Giulio Antonutto-Foi, Lead Lighting Designer, Arup.

“The Science Museum has set out on a journey to create a visitor experience which is both imaginative and informative. This amazing space has been created by wonderfully talented architects and engineers and demonstrates the ‘the beauty of maths’, which is fundamental to both our professions. The engineering behind these spaces is part of a far bigger story,”
commented Andy Lerpiniere, Associate Director at Arup.
