TROuVER L'ESPRIT Du LIEu
Le concept d'une « approche non
urbaine » ou d'une « désurbanisation »
pourrait encadrer une nouvelle
façon d'envisager le paysage et le
design urbain. Dans une approche
non urbaine « la petitesse » est un
élément essentiel de la démarche.
Il nous permet de combiner la
créativité du design aux connaissances
techniques pour aménager des lieux
atteignant une connexion optimale
avec l'identité locale. Il permet aussi

a result of visionary long-term planning.
They hold significant value, but they are
not without shortcomings. The greenery
often reflects 19th century park design
concepts in what might be classified
as urban-style - an over-designed
landscape architecture with only a limited
connection to the original identity of the
pre-urbanized underlying land. These
green places are a superimposed idealistic
image, far removed from the essential
genius loci of the place.
A QUESTION OF IDENTITY
In many urban areas, landscape continues
to be addressed as an afterthought
or secondary priority. Green space and
landscape interventions largely occur as
