In a world where science make us aware of all the maritime universe with all its resources of knowledge, we see the sea like a future science It feels normal to imagine a structure welcoming a research project.

The main idea of this architecture is to create a submersible building, where maritime life can develop itself. Seabiosis is composed by 3 big complementary poles : a natural reserve, a laboratory, et farms resulting of researches and experiences by labs.

The project gets its inspiration of the place where it's immerged. The sponge structure “Euplectella” the breathing of a dolphin, the bio luminescence. The building uses elements of its environment to be selt-suffisant, thanks to the sea huge energetic potential and development of a storage place for maritime species.
