In September 2008, an International Symposium organised by the “Ambiances Architecturales et Urbaines“ laboratory in Grenoble, brought together near to 300 architects, planners, landscapers, environmental designers, artists, psychologists, philosophers and sociologists. They have suggested answers, talked about and compared their experience, and raised questions prompted by current practices in the built developed space. Resulting from this Symposium, this book aims to cross over various ways of addressing the concrete nature and the creating atmosphere through three main questions. What makes an atmosphere?  How is an atmosphere or an ambiance created? How does one make an ambiance in an architectural or town planning project?

Waiting for an English version of Creating an Atmosphere, abstracts in English will help the readers to understand the content of the lectures and contributions.
