Mathematics: The Winton Gallery, by Zaha Hadid Architects, is located in London, United Kingdoms. The Science Museum’s Mathematics Gallery design responds to the ambition of David Rooney and his team to present mathematics not as an academic concept, but as a practice that influences technology and enables the environment around us to be transformed.


INSCAPE, by Archi-Tectonics NYC, located in New York City, United States. This next-level meditation studio in Manhattan’s Flatiron district is more tricked out than most boutique hotels. One ceiling features a floating, web-like rope installation by artist Tini Courtney, another a spiraling, woven pattern of bamboo. The space contains a set of ellipsoid meditation spaces; a “Dome Room” and an “Alcove room”.

Northwestern University Athletics Center, by How Architects, is located in Evanston, Illinois.

    These are all incredible. I hope to, one day, be able to visit Amsterdam again and check out the Ziggo Dome Amphitheater in person. I can only imagine how incredibly cool it is to see it all aglow at night.
