BIOMIMETICS AND SUSTANABLE DEVELOPMENT
Based on the observation of Nature, bionics establishes a synergy between shape and function, proper to the living.
More than just a translation by analogy of shapes and structures elaborated by Men, it’s a science that aims to give architecture a precise meaning, in line with its environment.
The Jacques Rougerie Agency, influenced through the years by bionics as a gateway between living and built shapes, composes its creations to reconcile Men with their original environment.
At a time when compatibility between technologies and the environment is one of the greatest 21th century challenges, the policy of the agency’s team is the necessary sociological, environmental and ecological approach for all their architectural projects. Acknowledgement of bionics, integration of human structure into their natural and cultural environments, respect for native traditions, the ability to design for a foreseeable future as well as accommodating future generations; apply to each of the Agency’s works.
