Appel à articles : Espaces d’enfermement | Espaces et sociétés

Appel à articles : Espaces d’enfermement | Espaces et sociétés | Ambiances | Scoop.it

Pour la revue Espaces et Sociétés deadline 20 novembre 2013

 

[..]

L’appel à articles souhaite cerner les logiques et les conséquences spatiales de l’inflation carcérale et de la multiplication des espaces d’enfermement, en France ou à l’étranger, à l’intérieur et à l’extérieur des prisons.

Quels sont les liens entre l’intérieur et l’extérieur, entre le lieu d’enfermement et le monde politico-associatif local ou encore les marchés locaux de l’immobilier, de l’entrepreneuriat, du lobbying, du salariat ? Si la prison est toujours la meilleure école du crime et de la révolte, quels sont les rapports économiques et les échanges culturels entre une prison et les milieux contestataires, ou encore avec les organisations délinquantes et criminelles des environs ?

Quelles critiques ou justifications, traditionnelles ou novatrices, expliquent l’engorgement et la multiplication de ces lieux, en fonction des spécificités de chaque territoire (injustice économique, crise économique, conséquences de la guerre ou de l’apartheid, évolutions démographiques et urbanisation, immigrations en transit ou en provenance de pays en guerre ou de régions mafieuses) ? Cette situation est-elle (perçue comme) un fait social avant tout régional, national ou international ? Comment articuler le local au global ?

Par ailleurs, quels sont les rapports à l’espace à l’intérieur de ces lieux d’enfermement ?
L’espace carcéral évoque d’abord l’ennui mais aussi le danger et le contrôle : espace de contrôle toujours plus sophistiqué grâce aux découvertes scientifiques et technologiques (caméras, détecteurs, prévention « situationnelle », produits pharmaceutiques…), espace hiérarchisé à l’extrême, espace de tri par cellule, étage, bloc (par exemple en fonction de la dangerosité supposée, de la longueur de la peine et de l’origine ou de la religion des détenus, ou même de leur statut social à l’extérieur), espace de trafic, d’addiction, de maladie, de persécution, d’intégrisme et de folie (l’expérience du « mitard » ou de la « camisole chimique », « l’hôpital psychiatrique du pauvre »), d’interdits et d’agressions (les espaces interdits, les espaces autorisés mais connus comme les lieux habituels des « règlements de compte », des rackets ou des viols), et enfin du suicide.[..]

Élaboration d'une méthode de qualification du paysage sonore. Le cas des quartiers durables allemands Kronsberg et Vauban by Elise Geisler

Élaboration d'une méthode de qualification du paysage sonore. Le cas des quartiers durables allemands Kronsberg et Vauban by Elise Geisler | Ambiances | Scoop.it

Thèse soutenue au Larep, le 19 décembre 2011

 

Cette thèse cherche à faire progresser la prise en compte de la qualité de l'environnement sonore dans le cadre de projets de quartiers durables, en s'appuyant sur la notion de paysage et sur ses évolutions récentes. L'intégration de la dimension sonore du paysage dans la réflexion aménagiste permet de mieux comprendre les rapports que les habitants entretiennent avec leurs territoires de vie, et donc d'intervenir de manière opérationnelle avec plus de pertinence sur la qualité de vie en ville. La spécificité de cette recherche réside dans son approche, ni épidémiologique de l'environnement sonore telle qu'elle est menée actuellement par les politiques publiques, ni esthétisante du paysage, mais fondée sur le vécu sonore quotidien des habitants. Cette démarche nécessite la mobilisation d'outils appropriés pour décrire, interpréter et expliquer le paysage sonore dans sa globalité et à une échelle locale - celle du quartier. Une méthode de qualification du paysage sonore a donc été élaborée à partir du recoupement :* des discours d'acteurs des projets, recueillis lors d'entretiens semi-directifs et de l'étude de documents (le paysage raisonné) ;* d'un diagnostic urbanistique et paysager, effectué à partir de l'étude de documents, de relevés, de photographies et d'enregistrements audio (le paysage sonnant);* et pour la plus grande partie, d'entretiens auprès des habitants, de parcours commentés, de cartes mentales et de journaux sonores (le paysage auditif). L'ensemble a permis de qualifier les paysages sonores des quartiers durables allemands Kronsberg (Hanovre) et Vauban (Fribourg) à partir d'éléments comme les marqueurs sonores, les indicateurs de qualité sonore et une typologie sensible des lieux. Ces derniers sont révélateurs de la manière de vivre et de s'approprier l'environnement sonore des habitants et peuvent servir de leviers aux concepteurs et aux acteurs de l'aménagement dans le cadre de projets urbains et de paysage.

Du “soundscape” au paysage sonore - Métropolitiques by Élise Geisler

Du “soundscape” au paysage sonore - Métropolitiques by Élise Geisler | Ambiances | Scoop.it

Article publié dans Métropolitiques.eu le 23 octobre 2013

 

 

 

Nous souhaitons dans ce texte reconsidérer la notion de « paysage sonore », traduction du néologisme soundscape inventé dans les années 1970 par Raymond Murray Schafer, compositeur et pédagogue canadien (Schafer 1979). Ses travaux précurseurs restent une référence pour toutes les disciplines intéressées par l’environnement sonore. Le concept tel qu’il l’a développé peut être aujourd’hui revisité au regard de l’évolution récente des théories sur le paysage (Berque 1990, 1996 ; Corbin 2001 ; Luginbühl 2007 ; Donadieu et Périgord 2007 ; Bergé et Collot 2008 ; Besse 2009, 2010). Cette notion de « paysage sonore » a été boudée en France dans les milieux scientifique [1] et opérationnel, au profit d’autres termes comme l’« environnement sonore » ou l’« ambiance ». En fait, le terme provoque autant de débats que celui de « paysage », jugé trop flou et subjectif par une partie des géographes à partir des années 1960 (Filleron 1998). Parce qu’étroitement lié à celui-ci, il en devient extrêmement polysémique et rattaché à la définition historique du paysage, selon laquelle le sujet est détaché de l’objet et l’observe depuis un point de vue privilégié. C’est en partie pour cette raison que la notion de paysage sonore reste encore peu utilisée en France, notamment dans le domaine de l’aménagement de l’espace. Mais il semble aujourd’hui intéressant de reconsidérer cette notion à la lumière des évolutions que la théorie du paysage a connues ces quarante dernières années, notamment sous l’effet des politiques publiques paysagères. Ces dernières semblent, en effet, le tirer vers une acception plus proche d’une construction sociale susceptible d’alimenter la compréhension des relations des hommes à leur cadre de vie, que ce soit pour le monde scientifique ou pour le sens commun (Geisler 2011).

Emargination: A Pedagogy of Ambience by Paul Carter

Emargination: A Pedagogy of Ambience by Paul Carter | Ambiances | Scoop.it

article publié dans la revue  Architectural Theory Review: Vol. 18, n°2 special issue ;On the Margin, pp. 150-163.

 

This article reports on a master class convened by the Centre for Creative Arts, La Trobe University, in October 2012. It describes a performative approach to the encouragement of participants to find common ground between their different research fields. Using a tool-kit of concepts (intermundium, fit, and template), the leader fostered a new genealogy of hybrid ideations that progressively materialised the qualitative experience of ambience. Ambience emerges as an accumulation of marginal interests emarginated to find their common ground. It is suggested that the rhapsodic style of pedagogy described here has particular relevance to an enlarged pedagogy of architectural design, one able to articulate the ambient properties of human groups and physical arrangements. Exploring another, institutional margin, the dramaturgical nature of the teaching technique suggests a way of turning the institution inside-out.

Le tramway et le pieton au coeur des quartiers résidentiels d'aujourd'hui. Pouvons nous en tirer des enseignements du passé ? Un contexte de comparaison franco-tchèque by Richard Zelezny

Cette communication s’inscrit dans le champ de l’urbanisme orienté vers le tramway et focalise sur deux contextes culturels différents , dont pourtant les enjeux de promouvoir les transports en commun sont communs aujourd’hui dans le cadre du développement durable : la France et la République tchèque. A part la densité et mixité fonctionnelle urbaine, le travail s’intéresse ici plus particulièrement à approfondir des recherches sur les caractéristiques de l’accessibilité piétonne aux stations du TC à l’échelle de quartier. Les points forts et points faibles de chaque côté ainsi que les potentiels de transférabilité des « bonnes pratiques» pourront être regardés.

Tunis 2014, Ambiances in the contemporary Mediterranean public space. Appel à communication

A partir du cas de la Tunisie — miniature mais dense — cette conférence internationale interroge la possibilité du partage dans les espaces publics contemporains en Méditerranée. Elle questionne le rôle joué par l’architecture et les formes de l’urbain dans la possibilité même du partage et invite à réfléchir sur les formes et les ambiances à venir, dans un contexte d’hyper-pluralité où la notion de voisinage se trouve remise en cause, et celle de marquage plus que jamais à ré-explorer.
 
Depuis la chute du régime Benaliste advenue le 14 janvier 2011, on assiste en Tunisie et plus précisément dans l’espace public à ce qui pourrait être non pas un « retour de l’habitant » mais une « arrivée de l’habitant ». Les Tunisiens aujourd’hui « habitent » l’espace public, l’espace commun, l’espace en partage.
 
Après avoir détruit ou significativement altéré les édifices qui symbolisaient la dictature (villas et biens des proches du pouvoir, commissariats et divers bâtiments administratifs), ils s’approprient les lieux en taguant les murs et en investissant les places et les avenues par des sit-in plus ou moins longs ou des marches de contestation. Mais au-delà de cette (ré)appropriation visible que l’on pourrait qualifier de « révolutionnaire », existe-t-il une réappropriation moins visible qui prendrait la forme d’une critique plus ou moins consciente de l’espace public désormais interrogé à l’aune de sa dimension d’espace en partage ?
 
Cette question fera l’objet d’une série de manifestations et de rencontres sur les ambiances de l’espace public méditerranéen contemporain. Une première conférence initiée par l’ERA/ENAU (Equipe de Recherche sur les Ambiances de l’Ecole Nationale d’Architecture et d’Urbanisme de Tunis), se déroulera à Tunis, à la Cité des Sciences, les 24, 25 et 26 février 2014. Inscrite dans le cadre des séminaires et conférences annuels du Réseau International Ambiances, elle aura pour objet d’asseoir la problématique et de lancer un réseau méditerranéen de travail autour de ces questions.

Quasi-cose la realtà des sentimenti ? par Tonino Griffero

Quasi-cose la realtà des sentimenti ? par Tonino Griffero | Ambiances | Scoop.it

Livre de Tonino Griffero et publié par Pearson, 2013

 

Vanno e vengono, ci aggrediscono e ci resistono, si sentono, ci contagiano, provano la nostra esistenza, comunicano affettivamente con noi grazie alla loro vaghezza: sono le quasi-cose, e non può sottovalutarle nessuna filosofia che intenda essere fedele all’esperienza quotidiana.

 

Cosa sono le quasi-cose? Anzitutto le atmosfere, cioè i sentimenti effusi nello spazio e che di solito non possiamo modificare, ma anche il dolore, la cui aggressività costituisce al tempo stesso una garanzia identitaria del soggetto. E poi la vergogna, sia personale sia vicaria (quella che proviamo per chi “dovrebbe” vergognarsi!), il corpo proprio,le cui “isole” eccedono gli organi del corpo fisico, lo sguardo, tanto aggressivo, nella vita quotidiana come nel ritratto, da produrre un’emorragia della nostra identità, e infine la luce crepuscolare nella sua suggestiva vaghezza.Tutti noi descriviamo le quasi-cose, le collochiamo in uno spazio, riconosciamo loro un’identità intersoggettiva e amodale, e soprattutto ne avvertiamo affettivamente l’invadenza. Sebbene effimere, intermittenti e prive di una causa loro esterna, le quasi-cose instaurano infatti una specifica comunicazione col corpo proprio di chi percepisce, generando lo spazio affettivo in cui questi si trova e che in vario modo lo condiziona. A una filosofia che non sia esercizio astratto, ma riflessione su come ci si sente qui e ora,spetta allora riconoscere che delle quasi-cose e delle qualità affettive che esse generano non può fare a meno nessun repertorio ontologico degno di questo nome.

Martine Chazelas's insight:

Livre où il est question des "presque choses" qui nous entourent, interagissent avec notre corps et font parties de notre quotidien. Ces presques choses qui ont certainement à voir aussi avec les ambiances.

Air/Atmospheres of the Megacity by Peter Adey

article mis en ligne le 7 octobre 2013 pour la revue Theory culture & society

 

In this paper I seek to initiate a research agenda on mega-urban airs that comprehends their atmospheres as simultaneously meteorological and affective (McCormack, 2008), an agenda which seeks to apprehend megacity air/atmospheres in their vitality, corporeality and expressiveness. This paper attunes to the close and expressive substances that make up immersion in a material-affective ecology of a place, the qualities of the city that seep and imbue its material and biological fabric with affect. There is a growing body of work and literature to aid us from traditions in continental aesthetic theory, French urban sociology and architecture, and an emergent cultural geographic field of atmospheric enquiry. The paper develops such an approach to megacity air in three main ways. First, air tells us about difference. In the testimony of pollutants and choking effluvium, an analysis of air reveals who belongs and who does not, who is deserving and who is not in a constellation of megacity inequality. The atmosphere puts the megacity apart from other urban and political forms. Second, closely related to the issues that circulate around a geopolitics of verticality and the technocratic security concerns of volumetric conceptions of territory, air/atmospheres constitute an environmental ecology of security threats and crisis that thwart megacity life and justify environmental policies as ‘security’ (see Zeiderman, 2013). Third, the paper argues how megacities are increasingly productive of secessionary atmospheres, often by removal and exclusion, which are not entirely separate from other atmospheric security concerns.

AAG Annual Meeting session : Call for papers: Behavioral and psychological responses to weather in everyday life April 8-12th 2014, Tampa, Florida

Organized by Lars Böcker (Utrecht University) and Mario Cools (University of Liège)

Intuitively, weather plays an important role in everyday life. How often do we not expose ourselves to cold, heat, sun, rain, snow or wind, or do we refer to these same elements at the coffee table or when writing post cards from a holiday address. Recently, weather has also emerged as an important policy aspect, with climate change, urban microclimates, health, accessibility, livability and subsequent aims to reduce car mobility and promote healthy but weather-exposed transport modes and physical activities high on the agenda. Yet although the influence of weather on daily life has been pervasive and its societal relevance never more pronounced, current interdisciplinary scientific debate on how weather shapes everyday life still requires further research to complete the areas that are under-investigated and provide additional empirical evidence to support policy-making. We thus seek to organize a session (or sessions), which address(es) the role of weather in daily life in its broadest sense, including behavioral or psychological responses to weather by diverse societal groups in a diverse range of geographical, cultural and climate contexts. We welcome submissions that examine topics including but not limited to:
Theoretical, conceptual and methodological issues in studying weatherWeather and transport modes, destinations and (physical) activity patternsWeather, travel distance and travel time (variability)Weather, moods and emotionsWeather perception and place perceptionSubjective thermal comfortEffects of weather in urban and rural areasWeather and everyday life in the arctic or the (sub)tropicsRole of weather forecastsImpacts of weather on shopping behaviorWeather and media consumptionThe meaning of work place, home and garden under various weather conditionsLocal knowledge, meaning and conceptualizations of weather and climate changeWeather and healthGender and weatherWeather and embodimentCultural and ethnic differences in experiencing weatherRole of weather and seasonality for tourism and leisurePolicies related to weather and urban microclimates

Please submit a title and a 250-word abstract to Lars Böcker (l.bocker@uu.nl) or Mario Cools (mario.cools@ulg.ac.be) by October 18th 2013. Selected abstracts will be accepted by October 20th in order to allow participants to meet the early bird registration deadline (October 23rd). If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lars or Mario.

The sensitive tower: Architectural and urban design education faced with fragile metropolitan ecologies by Lassance Guilherme and al.

The sensitive tower: Architectural and urban design education faced with fragile metropolitan ecologies by Lassance Guilherme and al. | Ambiances | Scoop.it

présenté au 29th eCAADe en 2011 à Ljubljana

 

Neighborhoods that are still outside the market target can find alternative ways of re-development. Therefore, it is necessary to design architectures compatible with their fragile ecologies. This research benefits from a previous study where we tried to observe the evolution of the uses of buildings and ways of living faced with changes in environmental conditions in a given urban context. Increased automobile traffic has led to changes in the use of residential spaces whose function was gradually replaced by commercial activities. Making use of graphic-oriented interpretation of urban ambiance and landscape analysis methodology applied to the design of different floor levels, this paper aims to introduce the concept of sensitive tower defined on the basis of observations made in our post-occupancy survey as a teaching strategy for the design studio faced with the current challenges of the contemporary metropolis.

Using Ambience as an Emotional Tool in Film by Michael Bovill

Master thesis at University of Huddersfield (2012

 

 

Although there are existing examples of ambient tracks being used in films to elicit an emotional response there is very little research or information on how best to write them. In this thesis a study is undertaken to find whether a selection of ambient sounds: Traffic, construction, birdsongs, crow squawks, sea and rain, all found to be best suited for a number of different film environments, can be manipulated and edited to, firstly, evoke an emotional response and secondly, to see whether this response can be affected through the changing of variables within the ambient sound. A number of variables were established for the selected ambiences; these were chosen to give the greatest chance of changing the emotional response of the ambient sound through their manipulation. These variables include delay times and density as well as some others specific to each ambience. A number of tests were carried out to discover the type of emotions being evoked from the different ambiences as well as the strength of the perceived emotion. The results show that all of the selected ambiences evoke a number of emotions, with the ambience of Sea creating the strongest feedback as well as the largest variation of type and strengths over the different variable edits. The ambiences of Squawks and rain were found to be much less efficient at eliciting emotions however there was some variation in the levels as the variables were changed. The ambience of birdsongs was found to be the least efficient with very little variation in the emotional response; it does however show that using real birdsongs elicits a much higher emotional reaction than manmade or edited birdsongs. A number of interesting results have been gained through this research, particularly in showing the emotional impact that ambiences can achieve, and has helped in opening an area of research yet to be properly looked into.

Le théâtre de la mémoire olfactive : le pouvoir des odeurs à modeler notre perception spatiotemporelle de l'environnement by Nathalie Bouchard | Ambiances | Scoop.it

mémoire de Master de l'université de Montréal, janvier 2013

 

L'environnement n'est pas un espace physique précis et stable. Sa géométrie est statique mais il est sans cesse inondé par différentes ambiances qui elles sont dynamiques. De plus sa réalité est modelée par le terrain mouvant de notre mémoire qui encode nos expériences, nos rencontres et autres complexes associations vécues à différents moments. Les ambiances olfactives plus particulièrement participent à la définition d'un espace urbain de plusieurs façons. Produites et modelées par l'environnement géographique, les conditions climatiques, les activités économiques et l'activité humaine, les odeurs appellent des repères spatio-temporels précis car se référant à des événements que l'on a personnellement vécus. Bref, les multiples flux odorants qui façonnent dans la ville un paysage olfactif mouvant sont autant de possibilités de restructurer le réel du citadin. Aussi pour permettre d'élaborer des moyens mettant en oeuvre les odeurs dans l'espace public, nous avons examiné dans quelle mesure les signaux olfactifs influencent notre perception de l'environnement en provoquant l'apparition de paysages temporels.

Architectural prototypes II : Reformations, speculation and strategies in the digital design field by Jonas Runberger

Architectural prototypes II : Reformations, speculation and strategies in the digital design field by Jonas Runberger | Ambiances | Scoop.it

Doctoral thesis defended at KTH school of architecture in Stockholm on june 8th 2012.

 

This doctoral thesis is situated within the digital design field of architecture, and is a continuation of the licentiate thesis Architectural Prototypes: Modes of Design Development and Architectural Practice, presented at the KTH School of Architecture in 2008. The doctoral thesis investigates the current status of the digital design field of architecture, and identifies a number of related discourses. Within this field, it identifies a period of formation, which in recent years has turned into a process of reformation. It contributes to this ongoing reformation by proposing two alternate areas of future practice and research within the field. A speculative approach is considered to be important for a continued mode of exploration within the field, and is suggested as away to bring new scope to the digital design field. A number of key terms from the field of science fiction studies have been investigated to support the construction of a speculative framework for further development. A strategic approach is regarded as crucial to the way new design potentials that have emerged within the digital design field to be implemented into general architectural practice, and to further inform the field itself. Key concepts have been imported from the field of strategic management in the formulation of a framework for digital design strategies. The notion of the prototype, as explored in the previous licentiate thesis, resurfaces as a prototypical approach, which could be equally employed in the speculative approach and the strategic approach.

The doctoral thesis is also situated within the field of research-by-design, in the way architectural design projects have been facilitated as contextualized experiments, selected, documented and aligned in regard to terminology, and analyzed through a series of design project enquiries.

Lexia n. 9-10 - Ambiene ambientamento, ambientazione : Environment Habitat and Setting edited by Massimo Leone | Ambiances | Scoop.it


Lexi a, Journal of semiotics, n°9-10, 2012


Che cosa succede allo spazio quando viene solcato dall’incrocio di a-gentività individuali e collettive? Quali tracce depositano tali pas-saggi e come costituiscono, a loro volta, la memoria implicita delcontatto fra lo spazio e le soggettività? In che modo, poi, questo in-treccio di segni e azioni si orienta verso uno scopo, piegando sia gliuni che le altre alla persistenza di un essere, ai dettami della sua tra-iettoria? Infine, in che modo gli uomini manipolano i segni per co-struire il simulacro di uno spazio vissuto, di uno spazio attraversato,di uno spazio ricordato? Gli articoli raccolti in questo numero mo-nografico di «Lexia» cercano di rispondere a queste domande attra- verso una riflessione che costantemente rimbalza fra tre concetti:quello di ambiente in quanto spazio d’esperienza carico di vestigiasemiotiche; quello di ambientamento come dinamica dell’accordofra soggettività e ambiente; e quello di ambientazione come artifi-cio che costruisce la parvenza di uno spazio d’esperienza e della suadialettica con le agentività. Vi si espongono le più recenti teorie dello spazio esperienziale, vi si sottopongono a critica i progetti spa-ziali che, nelle società contemporanee, cercano di predeterminare ilsenso dell’ambiente, vi si investigano gli scenari costruiti nelle città,nelle rappresentazioni artistiche, in quelle religiose

Architecture/Affect/Inhabitation: Geographies of Being-In Buildings by Peter Kraftl and Peter Adey

Architecture/Affect/Inhabitation: Geographies of Being-In Buildings by Peter Kraftl and Peter Adey | Ambiances | Scoop.it

article publié dans la revue Annals of the association of American geographers, vol 98, n°1, 2008, p. 213-231

 

Architectural design operates beyond symbolic and representational interpretation. Drawing on recent “nonrepresentational” geographies, we demonstrate how architectural space can be rethought through the concept of affect. We explore how individual buildings and their architects preconfigure, limit, and engender particular affects to accomplish very particular goals. Our analysis is based on two buildings in the United Kingdom: an ecological school and an airport. We demonstrate how affects both enable and constrain practices such as teaching, playing, and relaxing that render different buildings as uniquely meaningful places. The affects designated to and by these buildings are indispensable to the specification of particular styles of inhabitation, in ways not previously considered by architectural geographers.

Simulating the atmosphere of spaces by Christian Tonn and al.

Communication présentée à 25th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-6-5] Frankfurt am Main (Germany) 26-29 September 2007, pp. 169-176

 

At present more than half of all building activity in the German building sector is undertaken within existing built contexts. Work in existing building fabric is an essential aspect of most architects’ activities. The development of a conceptual and technological basis for the digital support of design directly on site, in and with the available architecture is the main focus of the research project “Spatial Augmented Reality for Architecture”. This article describes one part of the research project: the sampling of colours and materials at a scale of 1:1 using Augmented Reality technologies. This makes it possible to project the colour and material qualities of a design directly onto any surface within an existing building, geometrically corrected. A first software prototype SAR-CA has been developed and then assessed using a user study to obtain a first evaluation of the prototype to determine the direction of future research. Future research areas are discussed at the end of the paper.
