Current rates of animal extinction exceed 1,000 times the historic rate. De-extinction is a practise made possible through cloning, gene-editing, and bioengineering. Countless failures for fleeting success.

This project proposes a place for debate, education and research in to de-extinction. The scientific process is both the mediator and the exhibit. The museum seeks to balance the  pragmatic requirements for laboratory workspaces and workers with the intrigue and sense of exploration expected in successful contemporary museum design.

This project was part of a body of work that won the John Wardle Architects Award for Design Research in 2019.
