INTRODUCTION: MAIN WITNESS // THE SEA OF ALL INSPIRATIONS
Jacques RougerieArchitect, graduate of the Beaux Arts and of the Institut Océanographique de Paris. Elected to the Institut de France - Académie des Beaux-Arts. He has initiated a multitude of projects linking his passions for the sea, architecture and sustainable development. Convinced and passionate about biomimicry since the beginning. His latest major project: SEAORBITER.
Competition for bio-inspired projects, carried out by students during their 2016/2017 studies. Main theme: Biomimicry and sustainable development - how to draw inspiration from living beings to re-invent our world of tomorrow.
