La représentation des ambiances dans le projet d’architecture, Analyse comparative de deux approches des ambiances aux modes de représentation variés.

Abstract : From the beginning of the design phase, some architects bring a sensitive aspect in representations they produce to propose a multi-sensorial approach of the place they design. So, we question ourselves on the ability of images to reflect atmospheres projected by architects. The difficult part is to make visual representations which translate perceptions communicated by all our senses as Marc Crunelle explains (L’Architecture et nos sens, Bruxelles, Presses Universitaires de Bruxelles, 1996). While architects have, down through the eras, used various tools and modes of representation in order to communicate projected atmosphere, we study images and discourses of two contemporary architects. The present-time is especially interesting to study for it is marked by the development of the digital tools. We draw a parallel between projected atmospheres and users’ experiences with a comparative study of two buildings: Therme Vals, Vals, Switzerland, 1996, Peter Zumthor and Bains des Docks, Le Havre, France, 2008, Jean Nouvel. We deal with both different modes of atmosphere representations produced by the architects (sketches, digital images, photomontages, drawings, animated films…) and users’ experiences that we know thanks to “parcours commentés” method. Thereby we see how the architecture of two buildings with similar functions is represented during the different conception stages until the appropriation by users, although architects have a different personal approach of buildings atmosphere. Our aim is to identify and qualify the representations of atmosphere which allow users to perceive the projected atmospheres in the building.
