Arts plastiques ?

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy| 04.07.2019

The contemporary period does not escape the phenomenon and, faced with the multiplication of these forms of writing that take the body as a page, invites reflection and questioning : what meanings, for tattooed people as well as for those who look at them ?

Le rythme urbain : un outil de réflexion sur la reconfiguration de la morphologie de l’espace.

Tural Aliyev et Alireza Hashemi Behramani | 03.07.2019

In recent years, the study of rhythm and its possible impacts on the urban environment has become important. Today more than ever, the study of rhythm in a city has a transversal approach and enters in to several social science disciplines. As a result, the article has a transdisciplinary approach and seeks to question the relationships between urban rhythm and the morphology of space, in order to contribute to the reflection of the specialists who are interested in it. The understanding of the relationships between rhythms (mandatory, optional and personal) and the analysis [...]

Les rythmes indisciplinés.

Claire Pelgrims et Armelle Hausser | 23.05.2019
