As we approach the first anniversary of Dame Zaha Hadid’s death (31 March), a few of her final projects have been revealed.

The most striking new design by Dame Zaha and her team, based in Clerkenwell, is at the Science Museum. The Winton Gallery explores how mathematicians helped build the modern world.

Hadid became fascinated with geometry when she studied mathematics at university. Her design for the museum was inspired by an exhibit, the 1929 Handley Page ‘Gugnunc’ aeroplane, as well as equations of airflow in the aviation industry. Zaha Hadid Architects have also completed work on the Brit Awards 2017 statue, ahead of the ceremony on 22 February. Meanwhile, Zaha Hadid: Early Paintings and Drawings is at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery until 12 February.
