Seed Vault for a Sustainable Future: The roof is occupiable and allows for a heightened view of the park while acting as an extension of an existing walking trail. The lobby at the center of the curved form is completely transparent, allowing one to view the oceanscape beyond while approaching the structure. The building then ramps downward in a cyclical manner, thus embedding itself into the earth much like seeds rooting themselves in soil. The more private programs are located below grade, such as the labs and seed storage. They are highly controlled and sensitive environments that greatly benefit from the dense enclosure the subterranean location provides. The proposal harmoniously integrates itself into the landscape, while providing safe storage facilities for the sustainability of food diversity for future generations.
