Chronicle | The Attali report, or the revival of Utopias?

In a guided analysis of the Attali report, the architect and urban planner Jean Magerand assumes the role of Candide; It does not address the problems that are annoying because it is the working method and the areas of design, environment and construction, in the broad sense, that have taken its attention. A useful model? Prospective chronicle. Continue reading

Chronicle | From academicism to foresight

Why a prospective and architecture section? Because we must respond to an expectation too long dissatisfied, because we suffer from a time that is polarizes especially on the present and the short term and so little on the future, and because, more simply, we like to look at the distant future the Eyes in the eyes. Prospective chronicle of Jean Magerand and Claire Bailly. Continue reading

Chronicle | What are future architects dreaming about?

Chronicle | Will high environmental quality (HQE) kill architecture?

The recent Grand Prix of Architecture, Rudy Ricciotti, has blasted the new HQE standards, insisting that architects will be bridled in their creativity.

Chronicle | A true modernity… Why not?

Promoting a forward-looking speech requires constant attention to anything that can significantly influence the evolution of contemporary thought. In history, the future often begins with an evil-being in the present, whose symptoms are only discerned, most of the time harmful, without being able to perceive neither the causes nor the mechanisms.

Chronicle | Prospective Chronicle

Working and expressing oneself on foresight inevitably leads to a critical look at our contemporary ways of doing and thinking. Foresight disturbs the conformism and therefore requires, to express itself fully, a medium of free expression. Also, when Christophe Leray asked us to open a forward looking section in the architect's mail we did not hesitate. Continue reading

Chronicle | To urban hyper-density?

Difficult to define precisely what will be the nature of our living environment for tomorrow because our time, like that of the late 19th century, brings together all paradoxical situations.

Chronicle | Post-History of Architecture: the digital revolution

"In France, we killed the fine arts system, but we did not kill a modernity that was sometimes a little academic," says Antoine Picon *, a Harvard professor. "Technological change first corresponds to a cultural change, otherwise the technology remains isolated and does not interest anyone," he says. Three-part meeting * *.

Toward HyperLandscap

MAGERAND Jean, MORTAMAIS Elizabeth, towards Hyperpayson, L'Harmattan, 2009, Cites Collection Technologies Prospective, 258 p.   Cover four: Any societal organization interferes with the natural environment and generates landscape. The apparently unnatural collaboration of the computer and ecology is very coherent. What is the reference to the representation of this hypercomplex nature that reveals to us the life sciences and the information?
