This text intends to propose a reflection on the ways in which architectural designers can carry out scientific research – if they find themselves devoid of their fundamental practice, which consists precisely in drawing up projects – by producing and exchanging documents in view of a spatial transformation. Drawing from an experience conducted on the field with a research group, I will discuss an investigation that was structured and articulated around a public project in the municipality of Le Locle in Col-des-Roches, Switzerland. The reconstruction of some of the stages of this project has made it possible to consider the interdependencies between the many processes involving urban space and to grasp how they overlap in space and time. I have attempted to reconstruct the formation of the project as a still ongoing action, in the uncertain perspective that holds together the present and the future. This has brought to light a set of ordinary practices that have been deposited and revised over time even without following an intentional direction, which I have investigated starting from some interviews and from a comparative reading of the project documents.

Abstract

This text intends to propose a reflection on the ways in which architectural designers can carry out scientific research – if they find themselves devoid of their fundamental practice, which consists precisely in drawing up projects – by producing and exchanging documents in view of a spatial transformation. Drawing from an experience conducted on the field with a research group, I will discuss an investigation that was structured and articulated around a public project in the municipality of Le Locle in Col-des-Roches, Switzerland. The reconstruction of some of the stages of this project has made it possible to consider the interdependencies between the many processes involving urban space and to grasp how they overlap in space and time. I have attempted to reconstruct the formation of the project as a still ongoing action, in the uncertain perspective that holds together the present and the future. This has brought to light a set of ordinary practices that have been deposited and revised over time even without following an intentional direction, which I have investigated starting from some interviews and from a comparative reading of the project documents.
