Les possibilités du design contemporain et de ses espaces : approche de certaines architectures du Golfe, à vocation culturelle

Abstract : This research aims to highlight contemporary architecture through the study of the architecture of the Gulf countries. Through a research and a field survey, the problematic goes beyond the description of constructions to achieve a questioning about the significance of new constructions that compete with the wonders of the world. Organic construction, futuristic design and connections between indoor and outdoor are the paradigms of the reasoning carried out throughout this work. A series of questions lays the groundwork for this reasoning. First, the questioning of space is one of the axes of this research. Also, the research has focused on new materials used (advanced technology and scientific innovation ...). The work also highlights an interweaving of several disciplines (the interior designer, the engineer, the designer ...) that deal with the question of modern and contemporary. In addition, architects who have worked to promote their dreams through projects are highlighted. They stressed in turn the cultural heritage of the countries. From heterotopy, which defines architecture, to utilitarian aesthetics, through new technologies used by designers and engineers, the study focused on the evolution of architecture in countries in permanent change and constantly evolving. The research also questions the role of designers and their contribution to the development of contemporary architecture. An analysis of projects in countries such as United Arab Emirates and Oman is conducted. Architectural cases in Oman have been analyzed in detail.
