Noah built a ship for the animals of the Earth to escape from the flood. Today, we keep our seeds in the Svalbard vault against
the global catastrophe. If this idea was expanded to include the most valuable art, inventions and ideas of humanity and an example
from our natural world?
We store human knowledge in libraries. We protect our art in museums and galleries.
We collect the genes of the plants and seeds in the Svalbard vault, digitally record and reproduce our lives.
If an inheritance is worthwhile, we must be on the path to the ultimate gift.
It was the natural extension of these ideas when regional construction began in ISS Legacy X in 2019. A protection. An archive.
A collection that preserves the successes of humanity and the diversity of the natural world and wants us to confront the complex
relationship between the two.
Though priceless, our true hope for the Legacy X remains that we will never need to use it !
