Impact du développement du Dessin Assisté par Ordinateur sur le dessin appliqué en paysage

Abstract : This dissertation reminds the drawing's importance as a tool in engineering architecture and landscaping, studies drawing's computerization during the XX's century and its influence on landscaper's modes of thoughts, methods and productions, for trying to defined advantages and drawbacks of this "computer revolution". It starts by an inventory of landscape and architecture-applied drawing methods since 1950 to 1990. Then it focuses on Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) origins and its application to landscape. Finally it makes an inventory of today landscape's drawing methods and tries to measure CAD developments impact on Landscape-applied drawing regarding methods and graphic. The dissertation comes to the conclusion that CAD is still in a developing process and has not yet replace hand-drawing in every level of the landscaping creation process more particularly in the sketching process. In one hand CAD offers: higher post production's possibilities than hand-drawing; higher execution and correction speed; better photorealistic renders and access to more details; a better drawing tool's access for non-drawing-skilled landscapers; inter-professional and collaborative work's possibility. But in one other hand CAD leads to: pictures and drawings trivialization and project produced pictures number increase; communication troubles due to a non-mastered photorealism and details level; line's spontaneity's loss due to a still developing man/computer interaction; a decline of "layer by layer's" creative process; a decline of hand-drawing's skills. To conclude the dissertation makes a quick inventory of innovation's fields for Computer Aided Drawing, particularly tactile display, hybrid vector/bitmap's drawing tools and cloud-computing.
