ESSAI

Whether we realize it or not,
our aesthetic judgments are
steeped in theories advanced
in the 18th century.

with all our senses in concert. Our
perception is also mediated through our
movements and journeys and through our
posture and stature, without which the
concept of scale, for example, would be
incomprehensible. This corporality of our
relationship with the world was brilliantly
described by Maurice Merleau-Ponty in
his Phenomenology of Perception. 8 I want
to draw your attention to two particular
aspects of this rich and complex work.
First, perception resides in the
coordination of all our faculties, and not
in an accumulation of fragmentary and
essentially independent precepts. Space
and objects are perceived, for example,
through reciprocity between the structure
of the visual field and the motor action
that refreshes it constantly. In a word,
perception is truly intersensory.
Second, perception never happens in a
vacuum. If our perception is focused on
something, it is not solely because we
are situated in the surrounding space,

2

taking motivated actions. It is also focused
as it is because our current situation
encompasses our past experiences,
expectations, physical surroundings,
cultural milieu, ideological positions, ethical
positions, etc.9
This second point leads to the observation
that aesthetics, to the extent to which
they are concerned with the perception
of beauty, are inseparable from ethics.
It is not a question of choosing the one
or the other, for example vis-à-vis the
environment, but rather of finding ways
to align our aesthetics with the ethical
positions we have taken. That is why
aesthetic approaches that could inspire
interest, appreciation and even affection
for the ecology of a site or a region need to
be invented.10
Whether we consider the question from
this perspective or in more general terms,
the appreciation and pleasure we wish to
give users of the landscapes we design
does not reside, fundamentally, in our
capacity to create spaces with this or that
attribute, based on a program and various
pressures. Instead, it resides in potential
experiences, carefully thought out in terms
of sensory appeal and body movement,
knowing that both will be meaningful and
emotionally rich.
