Da Vinci: Shaping The Future

The exhibit focuses  on the Codex Altanticus,  da Vinci's largest notebook, which features ground-breaking designs, stunning artistic sketches and pioneering technological innovations. One can only admire his talents in so many areas - arts, mathematics, natural sciences, architecture, technology and music. This man was truly a genius, and a crazy one.

"Let no man who is not a Mathematician read the principles of my work"

Interwoven throughout the journey are five contemporary art installations, including three new commissions, which reveal how da Vinci's ideas and thinking remain strikingly resonant today.

This section showcases the glass sculptures by Luke Jerram depicting microscopic structure of Malaria, Human Papillomavirus, SARS Coronavirus,  Swine Flu and Hand Foot & Mouth. Beautiful.

All in all, it is an exhibit one should not miss.
