Sonic Transect: Questioning the territories of energy by sound - From comfort to ambiences in inhabited spaces.
6th Cresson' Winter School
Graduate School of Architecture of Grenoble, from Monday 22nd to Friday 26th January 2018
Questioning the notion of comfort in the urban environment focuses attention on our relationship with the inhabited spaces. In this thematic school, the notion of comfort will be investigated in the so-called « innovative » districts targeting energy transition, as is the case of the Presqu’Île in Grenoble. By identifying the various amenities of the territory, and by capturing what reveals the standardized comfort (seeking a homogenization of sensation) and what reveals the sensory comfort (searching, on the contrary, a variation of sensation), this will open a new reflection that questions the relationship between a sensory diagnosis capable of carrying prospective design intentions and an urban development model that is still evolving.
Deadline for registration: December 25th 2017
Organized by Sylvie Laroche, Noha Gamal Said, and Théo Marchal.
