Jacques Rougerie Foundation Awards 2013

Innovation and Architecture for the Sea
Innovation and Architecture for Space
Architecture & Sea Level Rise

Deadline October 15th 2013

Like Jules Verne, Gustave Eiffel, Arthur C. Clarke, Jacques Piccard, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Jacques Rougerie… you wish to put your passion and your talent as a designer, architect, engineer, builder into the evolution of our society for a better relationship between man and his planet.
You are passionate about these two worlds that are the ocean and space and you want to contribute to their sustainable integration within the development of our society in order for men to be aware of the need for a greater assimilation of those evolution wise fundamental universes.

The prizes of the Jacques Rougerie Foundation are meant to offer to architects, designers, engineers,… a unique opportunity to submit innovative projects in architecture, based on emerging progress and an prospective vision (including design, engineering, urban planning, artistic culture …) that meet the current key issues for greater environmental, industrial and technological responsibility, and take into account the precepts of sustainable development, enabling the evolution of our society (innovative materials, techniques and fundamental advance in design, development , energy saving or natural resources, recycling…).

Those innovative projects will necessarily fall under one of these two worlds: the ocean, a true guaranty for our tomorrow’s environmental and social living or space, a field of essential technological developments and applications allowing the future of our civilization.

Innovation and sustainability are the key words of this call for creativity.
Prizes will be awarded, irrespective of age, to an author personally identified by his name or to a team.
