Le représentation graphique dans la conception du projet d'éclairage urbain

Abstract : Visual representation can be considered as a main tool of the architectural and urban design. This activity reveals and enables design process as well as informs social negociation between actors. From this point of view, this research tries to define the actual revieval of urban lighting design. The study of visual representations developped by lighting designers, main actors of this revieval is the first goal of this research. Three kinds of data are used : work in progress observations, interviews and most of all visual representations coming from twenty different urban lighting projects. Interviews reveal common scenographic orientation as well as the importance of the acculturation process among traditional designers. A typology of the different visual representations shows this evolution : one of their specificity is to mix technical lighting notations and architectural ones. More broadly, this analysis reveals the intertwining of traditional and modernity in lighting designers projects. This caracteristic questions the distinction between technic and art, between design and communication. From an esthetical point of view, lighting design appears based on traditional scenography as well as on new lighting configurations.
