Damour has been one of the first to suggest that the dynamics of a black hole's horizon could be interpreted as the motion of a fluid, thus inspiring what became known as the membrane paradigm. I will review his seminal contribution and the more modern developments, originating from the holographic duality, that have led to a more systematic understanding of the connections between gravity and fluid dynamics
