Espace public : à la reconquête d'une identité urbaine. Cas de la réhabilitation des espaces publics en centre-ville

Abstract : Public spaces in city centers are really important in the production of a city center image. Formerly, they were spaces of sociability. But with the work of time, some public spaces lost their structure and their original function. Their identity vanished little by little. In that context, some authorities want to recover an urban identity of those public spaces. The goal is to update the image of the city and to express its dynamism and its specificities to everyone. The approach of landscape architects put the site in the center of their projects. This is a way to create some singular spaces, which offer a lot of point of reference for the local users. They also produce some distinctive elements, which are really interesting for the users who are not from the city. The landscape architect suggests an urban identity by working on space. But it is only the use of space that can reveal the real urban identity. In this document, we tried to understand how the revelation of urban identity works, by studying two projects of symbolic public spaces rehabilitation : The place Jean-Jaurès, in Romans-sur-Isère (26) through which we studied the suggestion of urban identity during design phases, The esplanade du Champ de Mars, in Valence (26) through which we analyzed the real urban identity of a real-life space.
