L'eau et le projet de paysage en milieu méditerranéen, entre sécheresse saisonnière et inondations soudaines : comment intégrer des méthodes de gestion de l'eau dans un projet urbain ? Cas du parc urbain sportif du Domaine de La Tour à La Ciotat

Abstract : Recent environmental considerations and available data on water consumption in green areas reveal the scarcity of resources and the need to think differently about the use of water in landscape projects. Furthermore, despite dams and canal systems in place, every year lots of damages are caused by the floods. The consequences of those floods highlight the fact that we need to find new protection solutions and new ideas to fight against these natural disasters. In response to this problem, legislations at national and European levels require an increase of security measures and encourage in particular the integration of new methods for managing storm water. In Mediterranean projects, these two issues concerning water management meet in a brutal way: the combination during summer of dry weather and seasonal flash floods demands that designers integrate these issues early in the design phase of their projects. The case of the urban park "Domaine de la Tour" in La Ciotat (13) is a good opportunity to apply concrete solutions and test their limits. This study aims to demonstrate that by integrating water issues in the earliest stages of project development it is possible to provide a safer design, thus increasing both the environmental value and the overall meaning of the project.
