Simone de Gale Architects has created the conceptual design for a striking spherical art gallery in the heart of the City of London. Inspired by the concept of “pure geometry”, they took cues from Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man as well as the Logarithmic Golden Spiral to create curved structural beams which both support the structure’s body, and create large expanses throughout for ease of movement. These spaces can be used for gallery exhibits, as well as social functions, and prove that pure math can be as visually appealing as it is logical.
