Celebrating the 10th edition of the competition in 2020, Jacques Rougerie Foundation invites you to imagine bold, visionary projects, in accordance to the major issues of humanity. The human being must be at the center of your project which will be based on bio-mimicry, an infinite source of inspiration. Since ever, nature has designed and manufactured the most elegant curves, the most beautiful shapes, and produces the best materials. In addition, your work will be all the more appreciated if carried out in a transversal and in multidisciplinary way.
Architects, engineers, designers, seize, the opportunity to create tomorrow's ways of life, to promote the richness of the sea and space, respecting them!
Today more than ever, we must find new forms of habitat and mobility, new ways of life that have to be inventive and efficient for the 10 billion people who will be living on earth in 2050, 75% of whom will live near coastlines and will be therefore particularly concerned by the challenges of the sea level rise. Prospective work on living in space has never been so ambitious. We must act to preserve and build the future of humanity in a sustainable way. To succeed in it, we must dare! In 1869 Jules Verne published "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea". He was deeply convinced that
“Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real”.
