Le défi esthétique en aménagement : vers une prospective du milieu. Le cas des lignes très haute tension (Lot) et des parcs éoliens (Aveyron et Aude)

Abstract : From the 1990's onwards, the land-planning of electric equipment (very high-voltage lines and windturbines) goes through increasing aesthetic claims. This helps making land-planning closer to landscape - siting. These two tendencies reveal a well-established concern for milieu in our days. This thesis examines to what extent the aesthetic issue- easily reduced to a form of convenient protest - could be a favourable basis for land-planners to take milieu into serious account. In a first part, through the works of Kant and J. Ranciere, we assert that aesthetic strategies modify the various ways of apprehending milieu and allow it to be taken into account by land-planners.Rather than the concept of controversy, that of disagreement - suggested by J. Ranciere - is privileged to set off the consistency of such an approach. Through the opposition to the VHV project in Quercy Blanc, it appears that with the help of aesthetic strategies, the qualities of the milieu are better acknowledged by land-planning but they come up against the normative contents of its project methods. Are we prisoners of a huge gap between the aesthetic reading of milieu and the normative world of action ? In a second part, we assert that land-planning can take advantage of milieu, provided that a prospective method may be found to consider the latter as a potential. Through G. Deleuze's interest in symptomatology, we succeed in finding a new approach to land-planning - not as a normative and anticipating capacity to define things but as the art of experimenting new modes of life. By studying two examples of windplanning projects in the Aveyron and the Aude, one can state that - although landplanners regard milieu as a means of carrying out projects in a practical way - they do not have such a good command of the windturbine develt. Reciprocally we have brought to light that a prospective method of analysing milieu, based on a multi-scalar approach and a non- determining cartographic semiology , gives a more efficient basis to wind-planning.
