Prise en compte du développement durable dans les projets urbains. Volet social et écologique. Application à Montréal

Abstract : Despite nowadays we hear it on every lips, the sustainable development is not a new concept. Indeed, the wishes of living in a healthy environment, of well-being, and of being balanced with nature, are ancestral behaviours which carried on for centuries, especially as regards to household architecture and landscape design, before sinking into oblivion at the time of the industrial revolution. These changes of behaviour didn't give trivial consequences on our environment and our quality of life.Through this essay, we will try to highlight the causes and the consequences of the previous mistakes about urban planning, architecture, and landscape design, by the study of the City of Montreal. Then we will propose some measures that both correct it and follow the principles of the sustainable development. The analysis will be completed on several scales, such as the quite big city's one, and then the smallest district and street and building scales. Indeed, the structure of a city is in a way fractioned, and each sub-scale which makes it up needs to work in synergy with all the others, so that a sustainable efficient and consistent policy can be applied, and also so that sustainable urban projects can be born.
