Visions du public en sous-sol

Abstract : What are the ordinary practices and perceptions applied to underground public spaces? Answering this question requires an understanding of the specificities of underground spaces as a sensorial milieu and a public space. In this respect, the initial hypothesis maintains that the underground environment creates a particular form of visual experience in public urban spaces. This sensorial-oriented ecology of underground spaces involves an interdisciplinary approach which makes it possible to articulate sensorial, built, and social forms. This analysis addresses three questions illustrated by examples at the Grand Louvre in Paris: the spatial-luminous design of the underground, types of sensorimotor mobilisations of passer-bys and modes of visibility in regards to others.
