Chairman : Serge Ormaux
Report : Philippe Woloszyn
Relaxed atmosphere during this first workshop devoted to the landscape theme. The first presentation of Gaëtan Bourdin describes the development of a participative and interactive tool in a urban area, the aim of which is to catch the belonging feeling of the inhabitants of a precise area in order to better involve them in a planning project (the Malakoff area in Nantes, France). The aim of this tool is to try to reproduce visual (360° photos) and sound (beatbox) atmospheres.
During the second presentation (clearly more theorical), Philippe Woloszyn proposes to formalize sound atmospheres while evaluating the cognitive distance between a real soundscape and an imagined soundscape. The participants then open the discussion about the question of the objectivity of the concept of landscape information.
Then, return to the visible landscape with the last presentation of Alain Sauter. He proposes an evaluation system of the links between landscape and public policies. Landscape indeed seems to be more and more important in the eyes of citizens, and the mention of the landscapes protection in the European Lanscape Convention is the proof of this realization. The presented approach proposes a methodology based on digital information sources (MNT, soil occupation), the aim of which is to identify and caracterize the visible areas in a urban space (Montbéliard).
These three presentations demonstrate that landscape is in the right place within the territorial intelligence issue because it is considered as a common good for which it seems more and more necessary to take into account the attachment value.
