Rachel's Forest by UNStudio, Umekita, Osaka, Japan
Rachel's Forest is an area that houses functions where the bio-technology industry can thrive. A park of 10ha is projected on the site, providing a habitat for local species and agriculture. A vaulted seedbank lies under the park with an educational centre - coupled with a health centre - and offices. Below ground level lies infrastructure that connects Rachel's Forest to the rest of the world via the Shinkansen and Airport Express.
