Jacques Rougerie Foundation lancia la settima edizione della sua competizione internazionale di architettura invitando architetti, ingegneri, designer e studenti a cimentarsi in ambiziosi e innovativi progetti sui temi proposti dalle tre categorie del concorso: "innovazione e architettura per il mare" - "innovazione e architettura per lo spazio" - "architettura e innalzamento del livello del mare"

L'obiettivo dell'evento è quello di offrire ai professionisti un'opportunità unica per proporre progetti architettonici basati su tecnologie emergenti e su punti di vista multidisciplinari tali da fornire risposte concrete alle principali questioni ambientali della nostra era.

Si dovrà tener conto dei principi dello sviluppo sostenibile e contribuire all'interazione del mare e dello spazio nello sviluppo delle nostre società. I progetti dovranno proporre materiali come le piastrelle solari e far riferimento a nuove tecniche avanzate in termini di concezione degli edifici, di risparmio energetico, di basso consumo delle risorse naturali e di riciclabilità.

The prizes of the Jacques Rougerie Foundation - Institut de France, are given in order to offer architects, designers, engineers, and urban planners a unique opportunity to propose innovative, audacious, and disruptive projects.

These architectural projects, based upon emerging technologies, a prospective vision and cross-curricular competences - science, sociology, climatology, geography, etc. - shall give answers to major environmental issues of our era and to future issues. They will have to take into account the tenets of sustainable development and to contribute to the integration of the sea and space in the development of our societies: new material such as solar tiles, new techniques, and fundamental advancement in terms of conception and building, energy saving, low consumption of natural resources, recyclability, etc.

This innovative architectural project shall take place in either the ocean, guardian of our environmental and societal quality of life, or space, field of development and of technologic applications, unavoidable for the future of our civilisation.

Architectural innovation and sustainable development to respond to major climate changes are the key words in this call for creativity.
