Launch of the International Competition in Architecture 2016
Imagine your future. Make your dreams real.

“Innovation and Architecture for the Sea” Award: € 10.000
“Innovation and Architecture for Space” Award: € 10.000
“Architecture and Sea Level Rise” Award: € 10.000
Architects, designers, engineers, artists, urban planners are given a unique opportunity to win one of the three prizes of the Jacques Rougerie Foundation – Institut de France by creating innovative and ambitious projects. These architectural projects based on emerging developments and a prospective vision should address some core issues of mankind: greater environmental, industrial and technical responsibilities, while taking sustainable development principles into account.
Encourage, stimulate and reward creativity and boldness, this is the Jacques Rougerie – Space and Sea Generation Foundation – Institut de France award’s ambition.
