Les enjeux intellectuels et esthétiques de la technique dans les expertises de l’Académie royale d’architecture (1750-1790)

Abstract : The article aims to further recent research on the technical expertise of the Academy of Architecture by extending the scope of study to the discourse and practice of inventors who sought advice from the Academy. Examining wood assembly techniques presented by the King’s carpenter Jean-Claude-François Taboureux in 1753 and 1789 gives us the opportunity to compare approaches from various architecture specialists: royal entrepreneurs, expert judges, ironmasters and other first grade institutions such as the Company of Expert Architects. The article aims to demonstrate the short-sightedness of architectural research based on the sole study of institutional sources. The chosen approach serves to highlight the aesthetic, intellectual and professional issues at stake in the development of the technique.
