Suspended from the ceiling you can find the inspiration for the gallery’s design, a 1929 Handley Page Gugnunc aircraft. Huge three-dimensional curls form a canopy over the space, based on the air flows that would have surrounded the aircraft in flight. The translucent, undulating forms are illuminated by violet light.

The Gugnunc’s wing design was influenced by aerodynamic research, and is used in the gallery to illustrate how mathematics can be used to solve practical issues.

“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,” said a statement from ZHA, “Inspired by the Handley Page aircraft, the design is driven by equations of airflow used in the aviation industry”.
