This limited edition, Key to the Museum of Hypothetical Lifetimes was created by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes to accompany his installation, Sanitorium, which formed part of the group show, Spirit of Utopia, at the Whitechapel Gallery (July – September,  2013).

I love the way it seems to conflate architectural plan drawings with the abstract symbols used in chemistry to represent certain types of laboratory equipment or chemical reactions; flasks and beakers of various types, effervesence, combustion etc
