La représentation des ambiances architecturales et urbaines : Introduction à une pédagogie des ambiances

Abstract : To describe the environment, we can uses the term “ambiance”, an “ambiance” refers to a whole psycho-cultural complex, it can also be called “environmental design” or “Genius Loci”. For architects, work with an ambiance, it is to act on physical phenomena and understand the social data. The problem of the representation of the “ambiances” interrogates the consideration by the designer of climatic and sound phenomena in the architectural and urban project. This consideration lays on a good knowledge of interactions between the architectural environment and physical phenomena, and the consciousness of the existence of these interactions by the users. The representation of these interactions allows a better contextualization of the project in space and the time by translating the global perception of a place. This global perception directs the understanding of the project. The representation of the “ambiances”, by his descriptive and analytical aspect, interests the preliminary phases of the project. The transverse aspect, also including aesthetic data, use and technical considerations suggest the birth, in the follow-up of the project, the new kind of architect. The work carries as subtitle, introduction to a pedagogy of the ambiances. This pedagogy is intended for all actors of the project, for architects so that they take into account more globally the climatic phenomena, engineers, so that they master better the relativism of the perception, elected members and technicians, so that their demand is better refined due to the elaboration of a reference frame and students to bound theoretical marks.
