French architect and oceanographer called the 'architect of the sea.' He worked for 7 years together with Jacques Cousteau on 3 projects and on 3 different islands. Rougerie was the designer of the glass bottom boat 'Aquaspace'.

Rougerie is also the head of SeaOrbiter with Jacques Piccard and astronaut Jean-Loup Chretien. It is a project of the "Floating oceanographic laboratory" organization. The SeaOrbiter, also known as Sea Orbiter (two words), is an ocean going research vessel set for launch in 2013. Similar to a space ship, the SeaOrbiter is planned to allow scientists and others a residential yet mobile research station positioned under the oceans' surface. The station will have laboratories, workshops, living quarters and a pressurized deck to support divers and submarines.
