Les territoires urbains de l'échange : l'agglomération toulousaine à travers les âges

Abstract : The thesis retraces the evolution of tolosan urban territories. The exchanges, complex maelstrom, are one of the most powerful ferments of urbanization's process. Each historical world presents specific logics because of mentalities and sensibilities, urban sociability, international context, technological progresses, etc. In this evolution, several turning points deeply modify the structure of exchanges, but one of them constitutes a more important rupture: the modernity. That's why the thesis is separated in two parts, the first one is describing the formation of the city and his history until the nineteenth century, and the second one is exposing the entrance into modernity and the urban development since the eighteenth century. The goal of the thesis is to underline this rupture and to measure its consequences. With the urban sprawl, the archipelagos of contemporaneous exchange generate new territories, of course from an economical point of view and also from the point of view of imagination. After that it has been the provincial capital of an agricultural region, the tolosan urban settlement of today is a good example illustrating this territorial mutation that produces new polarisations.
