INFORMATION AGE: The Science Museum, London.
Opening by her Majesty the Queen in late 2014 Information Age celebrates more than 200 years of innovation in communication and information technologies.
Two models, highly significant in the show were commissioned to Henry Milner. One is a scaled reconstruction of Vladimir Shokhov’s 1920’s 150m radio tower in Shabolovka, Moscow- This was built at a 1:30 scale in steel. Comissioned by The Shukhov Foundation the model is an accurate scaled representation of the design hailed as much today as in the 1920’s for its hyperbolic engineering. The other is the British Telecom tower.
