Explorations of the Seed Vault

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is located underground in the arctic permafrost on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen. This is the world’s largest secure seed storage facility and currently holds seeds from 5.499 species of crop plants. This collection is an important global collaboration for preserving the biodiversity and resilience of crops for the future. In this product line we look at a small, but significant, selection of these - showing seeds from both the most common species in the Seed Vault, and some of the least common ones.

This book is a part of an experimental project about interpreting and communicating data from the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. The project is developed by Jørn Knutsen and Einar Sneve Martinussen from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, and the design studio Voy.
