Les marais mésopotamiens et la question de l'habitat à venir : pour une évolution durable

Abstract : This work focuses on housing in the Mesopotamian marshlands in Iraq and the current and future human settlements in this region. Its aim is to gain a better understanding of the transformations of nature at work and functioning of the society; its dynamics, its relation to space and the way to project over time. With the goal of understanding how, in the current multiplication mutagenic factors, sometimes antagonistic, the society ensures its continuity and adjusts its home, is essential in establishing a base of knowledges on the local construction culture and to inform decisions regarding the government's project to stabilize the population. The habitat and the preservation of the traditional lifestyle, as well as of its natural environment are subjects of fertile interrogation for the research which points out the question of their located and sustainable evolution rather than their development. The results of this thesis can be a basis for discussion among architects, planners, developers and others researchers dealing with the issue of living in the face of a global environmental degradation.
