En quoi la réflexion sur les espaces publics des centres-villes par le prisme du paysage contribue-t-elle à redynamiser les villes moyennes ?

Abstract : Away from public action since the 1970s in France, medium-sized cities are experiencing socio-economic difficulties that are catalyzed in the city center. The city center is losing its essential functions and its car-dominated public spaces no longer allow for multiple uses. We examine the contribution of landscape tools in the revitalization of these cities by analyzing the regeneration projects carried out by cities that use this lever at different scales. If the mere requalification of the hypercenter is not enough to change the city's trajectory, it can improve the image of the city center. Some cities have totally reinvented themselves by pursuing long-term global strategies and by interweaving scales of reflection. The Action Coeur de Ville plan is being launched in 2017 to revitalize declining centers. Through the example of Niort's urban master plan, we understand that the national plan, despite the limited budget, gives a lot of freedom to local actors and allows synergies to be created in the territory. When elected officials and technical services are sensitive to the landscape approach, as in Niort, this "landscape tool" is mobilized to adapt cities to climate change and to tell the story of the overall project. While the LCA plan's scale of reflection still appears too small, new models are emerging to enable territories to make the ecological transition and to reinvent the relationship between the average city and its catchment area.
