Seed Vault for a Sustainable Future: The Seed Vault is an archive of the living environment that operates at a variety of scales — ranging from the intimate relationship between one person experimenting with a single seed, to the vast quantity and space required to store hundreds of thousands of seeds for food sustainability. The program engages with concepts of containment, collection, organization, and study of seeds as a means to preserve and promote food diversity for future generations. This proposal is located at a cliff overlook in a vast California National Park. In order to minimize interruption of views across the natural scenery, the building is deeply integrated into the site. The existing landscape gently lifts off the ground by means of a sloping green roof to accommodate the ground floor below.
