Usus/Usures (Catalogue)

Etat des lieux - How things stand

This publication emerged from an intensive investigation carried out in Belgium. It analyses wear as a material phenomenon and as an agent that can influence behaviour. It approaches wear not as a problem in itself, the result of an error of conception that must be avoided at all costs, but as an inevitable process that permits reflection on use and the practice of construction.

Cette publication, issue d'une enquête intensive menée sur le territoire belge, analyse l'usure comme un phénomène matériel et comme un agent capable d'influencer les comportements. L'usure y est abordée non pas comme un problème en soi, témoin d'une erreur de conception qu'il faudrait à tout prix éviter, mais comme un processus inévitable qui permet, pour qui s'y intéresse, d'ouvrir la réflexion sur les usages et la pratique de la construction.

Frutto di un’intensa indagine condotta sul territorio belga, questa pubblicazione analizza l’usura come fenomeno materiale e come agente capace di influenzare i comportamenti. L’usura è affrontata non come un problema in sé - testimonianza di un errore di progettazione da evitare ad ogni costo - ma come un processo inevitabile che permette, a quanti lo volessero, di interrogarsi sugli usi e sulla pratica del costruire.
