The latest exhibition at the Museum of the History of Science is

‘Compass and Rule: Architecture as Mathematical Practice in England,

1500-1750′.

This major loan exhibition brings together the histories of architecture

and science to explore geometry and design. It unites drawings,

instruments, and books from collections across the UK to shed new light

on the world of the architect and the mathematical practitioner in

early-modern England.

For those unable to visit in person there is a website at

http://www.mhs.ox.ac.uk/compassandrule/ which includes video and

animated drawings. There is also an exhibition catalogue by Anthony

Gerbino and Stephen Johnston published by Yale University Press –

details available on the website.

The exhibition runs until 6 September and entry is free.
