Autour de l’Orne industrieuse : paysages industriels hérités

Abstract : The landscapes of the valley of the Orne in Lorraine (France) have been transformed during the late 19th century by the emergence of heavy steel industry. The street villages, which used to be traditionnal in this area, quickly turned into mill towns : working-class neigbourhoods gathered all around the paternalistic factories. Between 1970 and 1990, the landscapes and functionning of these cities are once again transformed by steel industry decline. Then, the inhabitants emptied out of the cities, the factories were destroyed or deconstructed and replaced by landscape gaps (industrial wastelands). Theses industrial wastelands would be converted later, changing local landscapes again. Through the landscape and its quality of palimpsest, the space taught us the recent History of this valley (especially of the cities of Joeuf and Homécourt). Furthermore, the History helped us to relate the different landscape phases which characterised the valley of the Orne.
