DOOMSDAY VAULT

 
The "Doomsday Vault," the seed bank on a remote island near the Arctic Ocean is considered the ultimate safety net for the world's seed collections, protecting them from a wide range of threats including war, natural disasters, lack of funding or simply poor agricultural management.
I find measures like these impressive but at the same time when you see scientist and great thinkers backing projects like this you cannot help but be afraid. As a designer i cannot stop thinking about the future and what we have to leave behind.
