MaMaMu: Architectural Disorientation

One of the purposes of the Magical Mathematics Museum architecture is to disorient visitors.

Let's add the following:
  • Awkwardly shaped rooms
  • Sloping floors
  • Irregular steps
  • Skylights that lack external reference points
  • Movable walls so repeat visitors remain disoriented
  • Shadow walls that also allow children to explore 3D projections
  • Mirrors that also allow children to explore symmetry

Here today - gone tomorrow. That would disorient visitors too much, but let's fit MaMaMu into an 18-wheeler just as a 3D mathematical packing exercise.
