Territory and Architecture: Interpretations and Interactions

  • Lecturer
    • Frédéric Bonnet
 

The first part of the course develops the students’ skills to interpret urban and territorial situations, to understand what is the purpose of architecture in this understanding of places. It is made of eleven lessons organized according to four thematics: measures (places and links, built material, geometry and patterns); soil (nature, divisions, bases); boundaries (figures, edges, interfaces); time (memory, rythms).
The second part deals with critical notions closer from the transformation process of territories. We’ll display the dynamics and interactions of urban processes. This part consists of four thematics, split into three chapters: balance (durations, hybrid phenomenons, habitat); ressource (geography, materials, reconquest); strategy (representation, scale of impact, process modes); paradoxes (ideality and contingencies, hedonist and productive city, between individuality and alterity).
