Forming a cave-like space, the structure features numerous rods made of young and nearly extinct species of trees that tell the story of the planet's history. These samples include fantastical trees such as Cedar of Lebanon, the Phoenix Palm, and the Methuselah tree. Samples of salvaged wood from the construction of the Panama Canal Railway from the turn of the century, as well as the remnants of the iconic Atlantic City boardwalk devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, were also included.
