PATRIMOINE ET CONSTRUCTION D'URBANITÉ DANS LES PETITES VILLES. LES STRATÉGIES IDENTITAIRES DE LA REQUALIFICATION DES CENTRES-VILLES EN ISÈRE

Abstract : The issue of the small city and the relevance of the urban objects must be reconsidered according to territorial recombinings and contemporary processes of metropolisation. Downtown areas refitting operations in small cities have increased in the last two decades – it drives us to reconsider the methods of urban production. We assume that this restructuring falls under a process of “patrimonialisation” which takes part in a new design of “urbanity” through a setting in scene of central spaces. This research examines the constitution of new figures of urbanity and the emergence of new discourses on the figures of the small city through the instrumentalisation of the patrimonial values in the field of town planning.
The concepts of heritage, identity, urbanity are studied based on twenty small cities in the department
of Isere. The analysis of the requalification processes and the strategies of the local stakeholders reveals political methods for constructing a kind of urbanity. This doctoral research analyzes the question of centrality and the physical and symbolical implications of rehabilitation and aesthetic works
in public spaces. These operations refer to signs that show a generic idea of the past as the widespread use of urban furniture and ancient artifacts tend to confirm.
