Jacques Rougerie is a French architect-academian. For more than 30 years he has based his research and the structures he builds on bionic architecture inspired by marine forms and a concern for sustainable development. He has built underwater habitats, laboratories, marine research centers, vessels with see-through hulls, subaquatic museums, and has designed underwater villages and structures to draw attention on the beauty and fragility of the sea and its fundamental role in the great story of humanity. His flagship project SeaOrbiter is a synthesis of his innovative research in marine and subsea architecture.
« It is from the Ocean that will be born the destiny of civilizations to come. » – Jacques Rougerie
