Lecture on Thursday February 27 - 6:15 pm: "Restoring and building: Viollet-le-Duc at the heart of the project" Arnaud Timbert, professor of art history of the Middle Ages, University of Picardy Jules-Verne. The parties arrested by Viollet-le-Duc on its sites are the result of economic, technical, material, human and social contingencies. These aspects have recently been the subject of books which propose, on the basis of diversified archives (correspondence and workbooks in particular), to understand Viollet-le-Duc architect, that is to say, the one who acts - far from theories - by adapting to the multiple hazards of the site, by imposing choices and ordering men. Thus is gradually revealed its place in the group, its relationships with its direct collaborators (inspectors, entrepreneurs, verifiers) and its manner of aggregating, instructing and directing the actors (men and women) of the building, that they are those of stone (switchgear, masons, tailors, statuary), metal (locksmiths, plumbers), wood (carpenters, carpenters), etc. This approach thus makes it possible to understand the functioning of the site as a social space, to analyze the process of restoration and construction in its practical choices as in its technological orientations and to appreciate how, the material culture of the sites of Viollet-le-Duc shapes a singular collective identity. Free entry. On registration.
