Anteseedent 
Securing posterity 

Location: Dubai, UAE     
Plot footprint: 59,625sqm     
Project size: 18,087sqm
Function: Research center and seed vault 
Anteseedent is a research center and seed vault that artistically visualizes the life of a plant beginning with the seed protected underneath the soil until it is strong enough to penetrate the surface. Mimicking this life cycle; the Anteseedent project is engulfed by the surrounding nature where the foundation of the seed vault starts deeply underneath making its way 15 meters above the surface. The purpose of this project is to preserve local seeds of the UAE and work on enhancing future crops in response to the continuing decline of climate that magnifies food security threats on the UAE which already has harsh climate. Additionally, The project provides spaces to educate the public on seed science, food security, crop biodiversity and other related topics.
