International Architecture Competition

International Architecture Competition

Passion and boldness are the key words of the 11th International Architecture Competition of the Jacques Rougerie Foundation - Institut de France.

When and how will we be able to live under the sea? What kind of architectural proposals will meet the challenges of the sea level rise? How will we manage a human centered space exploration?

The international community of young architects, engineers, designers, students or professionals is invited to imagine visionary architectural projects, addressing the great challenges of humanity. Biomimetic, bio-inspired the projects will put together form, function and environment and will place humans at the heart.

The projects, expected from all over the world, must imperatively consider the environmental preservation and contribute to the integration of the sea and space in the future of our planet.
The candidates are invited to build multidisciplinary teams combining sciences, arts and new technologies and to use the constraints of the sometimes extreme environments as new creative force.

The competition is free and open to students and professionals from all over the world.
The prizes are rewarded with a global amount of 30,000 euros in 3 categories:

Architecture and Innovation for the Sea
Architecture and Innovation related to sea level rise
Architecture and Innovation for Space


The only way to submit projects is online until September 15, 2021:
