Résumé

Ce colloque international s’inscrit dans le Programme ANR Mapping Architectural Criticism (2015-2017), dont l’objectif est de développer un champ de recherche sur la critique architecturale des dernières décennies du XIXe siècle à aujourd’hui. Il débattra deux questions clé, relatives aux « géographies » de la critique d’architecture : ses frontières disciplinaires et ses territoires partagés, notamment avec la critique d’autres disciplines, depuis les dernières décennies du XIXe siècle.

Presentation

This international symposium is part of the ANR research project Mapping Architectural Criticism (http://mac.hypotheses.org), which aims to develop a field of research on the history of architectural criticism, from the last decades of the 19th century to the present day. The symposium intends to debate two key questions related to the geographies of criticism: what are criticism’s disciplinary boundaries and which territories has criticism shared from the last decades of the 19th to the end of the 20th century with other disciplines.

In the first place, the symposium interrogates the overlapping of architectural criticism with different kinds of architectural writing, in particular those pertaining to architectural history and theory, but also those stemming from other disciplines.

The symposium is equally aimed at highlighting the relationships, the common terrains, and the conceptual tools that architectural criticism has in common with other genres of criticism, such as art criticism and literary criticism.

The term “territory” is used here to refer primarily to the various disciplinary fields on which criticism relies and from which it borrows its concepts and patterns of interpretation, as well as its intellectual tools. The term “boundary”, for its part, is used to denote the zones of exchange and confrontation between criticism, history, theory and other types of writing on architecture, as well as between architectural criticism and other forms of criticism. The main aim of the symposium is to map these territories and delineate these boundaries.

Ce colloque international s’inscrit dans le Programme ANR Mapping Architectural Criticism (2015-2017), dont l’objectif est de développer un champ de recherche sur la critique architecturale des dernières décennies du XIXe siècle à aujourd’hui. Il débattra deux questions clé, relatives aux « géographies » de la critique d’architecture : ses frontières disciplinaires et ses territoires partagés, notamment avec la critique d’autres disciplines, depuis les dernières décennies du XIXe siècle.

Le colloque interroge les frontières et les terrains communs de la critique avec différents types d’écrits sur l’architecture : il vise à mettre en évidence les relations, les terrains communs et les outils conceptuels que la critique architecturale partage avec l’histoire de l’architecture, les théories, mais également avec des écrits émanant d’autres disciplines.

Le symposium met également en lumière les relations, les terrains et les outils conceptuels que la critique architecturale partage avec d'autres « genres » de critique, comme la critique d'art ou la critique littéraire.

Le terme « territoire » se réfère ici principalement aux divers champs disciplinaires auxquels la critique emprunte ses concepts et modèles d'interprétation, aussi bien que ses outils intellectuels. Avec le terme « frontière », nous souhaitons évoquer les zones d'échange et de confrontation entre critique, histoire, théories architecturales et d'autres types d'écriture sur l'architecture, aussi bien qu'entre la critique architecturale et d'autres formes de critique. Le colloque tentera de cartographier ces territoires et d’esquisser ces frontières.
