Marcus du Sautoy’s The Secret Mathematician: Architecture
Marcus du Sautoy is a mathematician known for bringing an appreciation of mathematics to the masses. He’s done many television programs, popular mathematics books, theater productions and musical performances. He has an exhilarating new series of radio essays about artists who he represents as secret mathematicians. The first two are currently available for a short time on the BBC’s website here.
I find it frustrating to listen to a radio show or read an article about visual art without having images of the referenced works. To alleviate that and augment your appreciation of the segments here’s an image supplement for The Secret Mathematician episode 1: Architecture on Zaha Hadid. Happy listening and scrolling!
