‘Jules Verne Foundation for Submarines and Deep-sea Robotics’ by Sebastian Kaus /// University of applied Arts Vienna, Austria
1. What is it?
The Jules Verne Foundation for Submarines and Deep-sea Robotics is a novel combination of a Jules Verne themed exhibition space, research centre and a robotic submarine manufacturing centre situated in Le Havre, Rrance. Best described as “amphibious” architecture, this unconventional waterfront project brings spatial elements from the underwater world to our terrestrial surface.
Visitors are able to experience first-hand the connection between manufacturing, research and marine conservation in a highly functional building with an exotic, aquatic atmosphere.
