Abstract

This thematic issue of the journal Aedificare considers the complex relationship between building techniques and architectural treatises in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Its aim is not to offer a systematic approach to this relatively little-studied subject, situated at the crossroads of several disciplines, but to present cases studies which confront these texts with actual constructions, so as to raise questions about the potential modes of contact between writing and building. – Editors: Caterina Cardamone, Pieter Martens – Contributors: Gianluca Belli, Francesco Benelli, Caterina Cardamone, Sara Galletti, Hubertus Günther, Pieter Martens, Pier Nicola Pagliara. – Ce numéro thématique de la revue Aedificare considère la relation complexe entre techniques de construction et traités d’architecture aux XVe et XVIe siècles. N’aspirant pas à ofrir une approche systématique de ce sujet relativement peu étudié et situé au croisement de plusieurs disciplines, elle se propose plutôt de s’interroger, à travers des cas d’études qui confrontent les textes avec la réalité construite, sur les modes de contact potentiels entre écrire et bâtir.
