VIVRE ET PRODUIRE LA VILLE DURABLE : SOCIOLOGIE D'UNE PROMESSE URBAINE

Abstract : As successors of ecological neighborhoods which led the way for experimentation since the nineteen sixties, « sustainable neighborhoods » are spreading all over Europe for about fifteen years. Firstly synonymous of demonstrator urban projects with « high added value », experimental fields for new technologies and practices in the environmental sector, the word has become more plural, including social and economic aspects. In addition, it now characterizes urban renewal projects led in priority areas defined by urban policies. Thus, we observe a large spread of principles and practices, tending to brand themselves as a “model” for urban futures, able to resolve both environmental and territorial issues (socio-spatial segregation). Based on field research carried out in three neighborhoods: Confluence (Lyon), Greenwich Millennium Village (London) and Village 2 (Echirolles), our main ambition is to question the coherence of the model from the point of view of the residents and its effects on their social life. The objective is to emphasize the kind of practices it encourages and the type of relations it develops to the city and to urban life. This research also aims to analyze, from the "urban fabric" conception side, how heterogeneous logics are articulated, so as to underline, finally, the risk of seeing the socio-spatial inequalities reappearing.
