Space Sea Generation — Joining Arts, Sciences, Technologies and Nature to build the future of our civilizations


Let's dive into the heart of the action to meet the crucial challenges of our time, by putting the spotlight on the ocean, the true pillar of our global ecosystem!

Climate & Rising Waters

Let's work towards greater environmental responsibility by integrating the challenges of climate change and rising sea levels into the development of our society.


Space exploration is much more than a simple adventure. It’s the driving force that propels our civilization towards new horizons.

" I realized my dreams thanks to women and men who believed in my vision of a prospective biomimetic, bio-inspired architecture and who helped me to implement it. Without them, many of these projects would not have been possible. Today, I wish to communicate this passion that has always driven me by helping new generations to imagine their future and build their own dreams. This is our commitment with the foundation, because it is from the ocean and space that the destiny of our civilization will come.”
