The 13th International Architecture Competition by Jacques Rougerie Foundation Is Open For Entries

Creators, thinkers, artists, talented women and men: the Planet is waiting for you!

For the 13th edition of its international architecture and innovation competition, the Jacques Rougerie Foundation once again invites you to push back the limits. By encouraging you to be brave and bold, the Foundation calls on you to share your wildest dreams. As every year since 2009, the Jacques Rougerie Foundation - Academy of Fine Arts offers a unique opportunity to propose innovative, daring and disruptive projects, focused on climate, ocean and space. 

Based on emerging advances, this call for creativity encourages a forward-looking vision and cross-disciplinary skills (science, sociology, climatology, geography, etc.) in the face of the environmental challenges of today and tomorrow.

The architectural concepts of the projects will be evaluated according to the following 9 criteria:

- Place of the human in the project

- Biomimicry & bio-inspiration

- Architectural quality

- Prospective dimension

- Innovation & technique

- Sustainable development

- Graphic quality

- Respect of the fundamental physical laws (technical and technological bases imaginable as realistic or possible in the future, even distant)

- Respect of the theme 

Three international Grands Prix reward biomimetic and multidisciplinary architectural projects:

In 2023, the Jacques Rougerie Foundation - Academy of Fine Arts will reward candidates presenting an architectural project related to the field of space, the sea, climate and rising waters, by awarding prizes of a cumulative amount of €40,000 (forty thousand euros).
