La rivière Tô LỊch dans le paysage de Hanoï : étude de cas : le village Hạ Yên Quyêt (Cót) & le village Định Công Hạ

Abstract : Hanoi was born of water. The Tô Lịch River (The Tô), within the city, is part of its lakes and rivers network. In the past, its historical, cultural, social and environment values allowed a balanced urban growth of Hanoi landscape, a sustainable yet very fragile development. Our research allows us to understand what are its core landscape values, to identify its characteristics and the area uniqueness related to the villages bordering this stream, establishing its urban space.The Tô is the mirror of urban society, with space and urban landscape being located in the heart of the uncontrollable urbanization storm. Did we forget it? Its urban landscape is threatened by serious landscape pollution.We study two traditional villages, Cót and Định Công Hạ, located at sector II and III of the river landscape. Our tools are sociological investigation of geo-landscape and study of settlement, architecture, heritage and environment of present Tô under the impact of urbanization. In both villages, our results have demonstrated such impacts on studied sections of the Tô, at different degrees. These results are also tools to identify present river morphology of the present river and its distinctive values. Moreover, the study shows the important role of the Tô in the landscape and the urban morphology of Hanoi as a metropolis.Through the analysis of landscape structure of a village set in relation to the river, the research offers a model of urban project and sustainable urban development for the river landscape. This structure consists on: Culture-Social-Heritage-History; Trade-Crafts-Agriculture; Environment-Housing-Ecology. These key elements are shaping the identity of the village landscapes and of each part of the Tô. They are a strategy of landscape development for other Vietnamese rivers.
