Description

This subseries features Lassus’ experimental research and studies from 1959 to 1968. Beginning with his earliest experiments, Lassus researched and developed theories on visual phenomena, human interactions with their environment, and sensory perception of the landscape; especially regarding color, light, movement, and sound. These folders include writings and diagrams relating to the living moods experiments of Les Ambiances, 1959-1968, including the lighting studies commissioned by Suchard (1959) and La Compagnie des Lampes Mazda (1960). The subseries also includes materials relating to: Une étude d’ambiance, La Coudoulière, with G. Grandguillot (1967-1972), the study of the coloring of apartment buildings in Quétigny-lès-Dijon (1967–1975), the examination of building facades at Evry I (1971-1978), and the exploration of urban design in the town of Amneville (1975).
