Le dialogisme urbain : de l’usage tacite des espaces publics aux formes d’appropriation narrative et affective de la ville

Abstract : This research study aims to show the transition from the ordinary use of public spaces to the enunciation of a city narrative in which the social actors are committed in the shared project of an urbanity in the making. Beyond a pure aesthetic preoccupation, the urban dialogism responds to the centrality of the city as a privileged space for the elaboration of social issues. By focusing on the appropriation of urban space during guided urban walks, we will see how they constitute a catalyst for deconditioning participants in their relationship to the city. This research project thus follows three investigation perspectives.First, there is the transition from the pure heterogeneity of urban styles – from a building classified as institutional heritage to the anomie of a vacant lot - to the dialogical interplay between aesthetics in competition. We will be able to understand the interaction of languages, the cohabitation of institutional forms and more individualized and temporary statements, expressed by an ever-changing citizenship picture.Then, it is a question of observing the transformation of the functional itineraries to the displacements according to elective courses going through characteristic elements, allowing an ever-renewed affective grip on the city.Finally, this study constitutes an analysis that is not limited to a taxonomy of practices. Rather, it seeks to account for the management of meaning in interaction - a form of interaction where the appropriation of the city and its objects is not only intimate, but observable because explicit, socialized, and attested by experience.
