In case you haven't seen it...

Check out (at least virtually) Kew Gardens Millennium Seed Bank. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, the Seed Cathedral is the largest wild plant seed bank in the world. Like all seed banks, its mission is to keep a living archive of the planet's wildly diverse plant life, protecting against worst-case scenario extensions or invasive species disruptions. The scape surrounding the cathedral is meant to represent wrapping paper - like the opening of a gift.

I want, To go. To there.
