The Phenomenology of a Railway Expedition in China: The Gate, the Station, the Journey and the Arrival

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Junjie Xi le 18/05/2020 à 02:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

Hosting more than two-thirds of the global high-speed train network, and growing at an unprecedented rate, China has become an interesting location for studying this infrastructure. In this paper, the authors begin by introducing some particularities related to the high-speed travel experience, in order to provide a general understanding of how it affects people’s perceptions of time and space. This is followed by an explanation of some peculiarities that have defined the Chinese case as unique. Grounded on theories that assert the interlaced connection between modernity and phenomenology, in this paper the authors explore the connection between the conditions that defined modernity in China and the phenomenology of travel using high-speed trains. The problematic initial approach to Chinese modernity – through the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution – impacted later decisions regarding the new infrastructure, rendering high-speed train journeys in China unique. After the ...


Staging Atmospheres – Theatre and the Atmospheric Turn

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents le 04/02/2020 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

This special issue of Ambiances seeks to address issues raised by the emerging theatrical paradigm within international scholarship on atmosphere and ambiance. On the one hand, the issue seeks to investigate why the theatre seems to present itself as such an acute example of what Thibaud (2015) has termed the ‘affective tonality’ of aesthetic experience for scholarship that is not necessarily concerned with the phenomenology of performance per se. On the other hand, the editors hope to address what, in turn, the practice and study of theatre has to learn from the atmospheric turn across a range of other disciplines in which the features of theatre and the theatrical as aesthetic, spatial and/or social generators of atmospheres have been regularly deployed by scholars in architecture, geography and philosophy (Böhme 2017, McCormack 2014, Bille et al 2015). What is noteworthy across many, if not all, of these enquiries is the rejuvenation of the aesthetic as an intellectual and ethica...


Atmosphères en scène : le théâtre à l’ère du tournant atmosphérique

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents le 04/02/2020 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

Ce numéro spécial de la revue Ambiances a pour but d’aborder des questions liées à la question de la production et la représentation des atmosphères et des ambiances au théâtre et qui émergent actuellement au sein de la communauté scientifique internationale. D’une part, ce numéro cherche à étudier les raisons selon lesquelles le théâtre semble se présenter comme un exemple flagrant de ce que Thibaud (2015) a nommé la « tonalité affective » de l’expérience esthétique telle qu’éprouvée par une communauté qui ne serait pas autrement concernée par la phénoménologie de la performance en tant que telle. D’autre part, les éditeur.trice.s souhaitent également aborder ce que la pratique et l’étude du théâtre ont, quant à elles, à apprendre du tournant atmosphérique à partir d’un large éventail d’autres disciplines dans lesquelles les éléments du théâtre et le paradigme théâtral ont été régulièrement mobilisés en tant que générateurs esthétiques, spatiaux et/ou sociaux d’atmosphères par des ...


Eyes that hear. The synesthetic representation of soundspace through architectural photography

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Elisa Morselli le 20/12/2019 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

This paper investigates the representation of sound phenomena in contemporary architectural photography. This aspect will be highlighted through a phenomenological analysis conducted on the photographs of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, designed by Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. Focusing our analysis on the aesthetic features of photographs, the aim of stimulating the audience sensorially and emotionally becomes evident. We usually only focus on visual aspects, neglecting the synesthetic effects generated on the observers. Starting from an analysis of the portrayed persons in terms of expressions, gestures, postures and corporeal directions, the goal is to highlight how they change in relation to the building's sound space, and, as a consequence how they are able to influence the perceiver outside the frame. The interpretation of these clues is based on Herman Schmitz's felt body theory and Gernot Böhme's New Aesthetics.


Atmospheres: Feeling Architecture by Emotions

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Elisabetta Canepa le 20/12/2019 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

What is architectural atmosphere? To answer this question, we propose a paradox: a precise definition of the inherently vague and ambiguous concept of atmosphere that satisfies, as so far as possible, scientific criteria and methodology. We suggest that the term atmosphere, understood in an architectural context, defines a state of resonance and identification (sensorimotor, emotive, and cognitive) between an individual and their surrounding built space. Human beings can empathise with inanimate rooms when they interiorly establish an embodied simulation of certain architectural features. Thus, atmospheres might be determined, mapped, and measured through quantitative methods tracing emotional, cognitive, and neurophysiological responses of individuals to spatial conditions.
The exploratory study illustrated attempts to test this hypothesis, by undertaking an experiment informed by phenomenological and embodied cognition theories. We analysed the spatial unit of the corridor, altered...


TerriStories. Literary Tools for Capturing Atmosphere in Architectural Pedagogy

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Klaske Havik le 20/12/2019 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

By recognizing the potential of literary language in the description of architectural atmospheres, this contribution aims to confront the shortcomings of conventional pedagogical approaches in architecture that often fail to provide an in-depth understanding of the experiential aspects of place. To contribute to the development of appropriate instruments of analysis and design to read and describe urban atmosphere, this article combines two main insights: first, that it is of crucial importance to investigate site-specific atmospheres to understand how people experience the urban territories they use or inhabit; and second, that it is through literary devices that atmospheres can be read and described. By bringing together these insights, this article aims to propose pedagogical exercises that help students of architecture to develop a better understanding of the experiential aspects of site-specificity. By adding to the conventional tools of architect and planners a set of tools in...


How atmospheres inform urban planning practice – insights from the Tempelhof airfield in Berlin

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Ulrike Mackrodt le 20/12/2019 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

The fundamental subject matter of urban planning is urban space. However, this fact is rarely reflected in planning theory. Instead of dealing with the everyday use of urban space and its atmospheric perception, planning discourse is dominated by theories of action, which primarily focus on communication processes within planning practice. The role of urban space within these planning negotiations is often overlooked. By disregarding the feeling and sensing body/subject as being the base of any perception – including those of planning professionals – planning discourse has left out the chances of a more comprehensive understanding of how planning decisions occur. The article aims to fill this epistemological gap by applying the concept of atmospheres to the case study of the planning process for the former inner-city airfield Tempelhof in Berlin. Thereby it becomes possible to consider the impact of the – borrowing Gernot Böhme’s terminology – ‘unobtrusive obtrusiveness’ of atmosphe...


Phenomenographies: describing the plurality of atmospheric worlds

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Federico De Matteis le 20/12/2019 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

In recent years, the theory of atmospheres has extended beyond phenomenology and aesthetics, informing a wide variety of descriptive practices in the humanities. Diverse scholarly fields such as anthropology and architecture, musicology and art criticism now include the notion of atmospheric space in their methodological toolkits. The descriptive practices of lived space, however, entail several theoretical questions, concerning the potential and limits of giving voice to first-person experience. In the introductory essay of the 2019 special issue of Ambiances, we address the methodological perspectives emerging from the articles and discuss several question concerning the theory of atmospheres and the practices aimed at describing them.


Atmospheres in Urban Light

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Shanti Sumartojo le 20/12/2019 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

Inescapably spatial and located in experience, understanding atmospheres and their impact means close empirical attention to how they arise and are constituted, how they impress upon us, how they circulate and are shared, and what configures to make them feel differently for diverse people. In this article, we advance a dialogic autoethnographic methodology for attuning to, exploring and understanding atmospheres that accounts for them as they arise in the ongoing flow of experience of light. In this ethnographic approach, we research in atmospheres – that is, in the ongoing flow and change of shifting impressions and feelings constituted spatially by a multiplicity of elements. Taking a ‘light walk’ through inner city Melbourne as our example, we interrogate our experience of atmospheres in light, and also address how they might be purposefully constituted or designed.


Depicting Berlin’s Atmospheres: Phenomenographic Sketches

RST Ambiances - Fil des documents par Maxime Le Calvé le 20/12/2019 à 01:00:00 - Favoriser ||  (Lu/Non lu)

This article proposes an ethno-phenomenographic record combining writing and drawing. It examines a few contemporary atmospheres of the city of Berlin. We describe a selection of specific situations from the angle of sensorial experience and contextualize them with sociological, geographical and historical elements. Tackling some atmospheres characteristic of a city at a certain period of its history is not the same as trying to grasp the ways of living in it; therefore, our approach is neither sociological nor geographical per se. Elaborating on four specific cases and reflecting from our own perspectives, we will examine the hypothesis of a fragmentation of Berlin’s atmospheres, exploring the ambivalent meanings of such assessment. The method is ethnographic: we base our descriptions on direct observation and we confront our respective experiences in places physically circumscribed by architecture and urban forms, interspersed with multiple presences and interactions during the ob...
