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. Those architectural projects, based on emerging technologies, a prospective vision and interdisciplinary competences – science, sociology, climatology, geography, etc. – should elucidate current and future environmental issues. Projects must as well be mindful of the ethics of sustainability and contribute to the integration of the sea nd space in our societies: innovating materials, advanced techniques, and fundamental progress in terms of conception and building, energy saving, protection of natural resources, recycling, etc.
