Pôle d'échanges : nouvelle dynamique urbaine. Exemple de la gare d'Annemasse

Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to study and analyse 'interchange hubs' and their impact on urban movements and landscape by using the Annemasse interchange hub project as an example. First of all, it is important to link interchange hubs with the history of urban movements in order to understand the evolution of transportation and its impact on town planning. Every transport mode generates its own urban landscape; this helps us understand the architecture of any given city integrating an interchange hub. Subsequently we will study the notion of 'interchange hub' in order to reach a definition that will allow a clear understanding of the issues at stake. The term is indeed difficult to define and authors have different viewpoints on the subject, but three main characteristics may describe an interchange hub: transport, urban, service. Then, the study of the Annemasse interchange hub project will enable us to describe its impact on the movements and the urban landscape In conclusion this thesis will deal with the qualities of this project in terms of movements, urban landscape, urban insertion and urban life.
