La ville apaisée, vers une pacification de la circulation des espaces publics urbains au regard de deux projets de ville : Bourgoin-Jallieu et Annemasse

Abstract : Public spaces in cities have seen their landscape change over time. Originally, they are meeting and sharing places where pedestrians are free for moving. But, they have become the privileged place of motorized transports, more particularly cars which occupy a large space. For over fifty years, the development of public spaces has been centered around this mode of transport and space-consumer leaving no space for non-motorized users. The social dimension of public spaces was cleared for the benefit of the circulation function. Deal with current issues (environment, safety, accessibility), a trend reversal is noticed. The living environment has become a key point in projects. The car is now more streamlined and circulation limited. Planning policies of public spaces want to offer to the users living spaces, reflecting an identity, a city dynamism and a certain quality of life. The objective of this study is to understand how the landscape of public spaces has changed, why the interaction between different users become more complex and what are now the options to achieve calm cities with the example of two projects for improving urban public spaces in the cites of Bourgoin-Jallieu (38) and Annemasse (74).
