The Maison Poincaré : start the visit ! (3/3)

In this article, discover the contents of the SHARE and BREATHE spaces of the Maison Poincaré!


The SHARE space, the former tea room, will be a meeting place for researchers and the public, with a map illustrating how mathematics has been practiced and shared throughout the ages and around the world; a device recounting the experiences of researchers in an illustrated way; and a whisperer of formulas, from the best-known to the most recent ones, presented for their aesthetic value and the background they convey.



This space will also be where mathematics meets art. In particular, a selection of models from the IHP collection will be presented. Its patrimonial aspect will be preserved.


After visiting the different spaces of the Maison Poincaré, you will be able to take some time to discuss with the researchers present in the garden of the Maison Poincaré (the BREATHE space).

The replica of the famous Bourbaki painting, the original of which will be exhibited in the SHARE space, can be used as a support for exchanges, awakening the mathematician in each one of you!

During your conversation in the open air, your eye will inevitably be drawn to the symbol of the Maison Poincaré, the Grand Rulpidon, whose monumental size will allow you to "touch" the beauty of mathematics with your fingertips.

To make this project a success, we need your support! Our fundraising goal is a little over 100,000 euros! This will not happen without you!

Throughout the year, we will not fail to keep you informed of the progress in the design of the devices and the layout of the spaces.


Every donation counts ! Thank you for your generosity !
