This thesis, since the law of the 11 th june 1842 until to the nationalization of french railway's network in 1938, shows the roles which played successively the " Compagnie des Chemins de fer de l'Ouest " ( 1857-1908 ) and the " Compagnie des Chemins de fer de l'Etat " ( 1909-1937 ) in the architectural, spatial and technical development of the famous railway stations from Rennes-Brest 's line. Trough the examples of Rennes, Saint-Brieuc and Brest's railway stations, the analysis introduces the notion of railway area including the study of the public spaces ( reception of passengers ) and the technical spaces ( merchandises and marshalling's railways stations, military and industrial junctions, depositories, equipment's maintenance shop, annexes, harbour stations, agents lodgings, and common stations ). The themes here tackled treat of urban layout's processe, of architectural characteristics of building and civil engineering works, as well as practices or technical innovations.
The thought of K'i and painting : poetical creation and practical experience
Pas de résumé disponible.
At the beginning of the reflexion, the notion of K'i outcomes from the taoist tradition : a resonance of the spirit which gives the motion of the life. The purpose of the thesis is to show the signifiance of this concept within a personnal artistic expression, involved at the crossing of eastern and european cultures. Turning back to the sources of the chinese thought allows to gather the conceptual field (cosmological, ethical and aesthetical) of the idea, then to extend it to the corean culture, in order to bring out its specific identity, through the ancient and modern pictural art. The third part of the thesis develops the main aspects of the plastic creation of the author. "K'i", connected to the analysis of the various experiences (drawing, painting, video devices) shows his artistic peculiarity.
