Dans quelle mesure un projet de paysage permettrait-il de dynamiser un territoire de guerre et de valoriser sa mémoire ?

Abstract : Landscape was always linked to the war. However, its implication in military strategies took much more significance as time passed by: from only being a theatre of conflicts, the landscape became a critical player since the First World War. Each of its facets has been used, from its relief to its hydrography, not to mention its vegetation. At the end of the war, the artillery disasters turn the landscapes into collateral victims completely wiped out by four years of bombings. Even if landscapes have been totally rebuilt by local populations, they still keep the marks of this confrontation, through veterans’ memory, commemorative ceremonies or geomorphological heritage. Nowadays, more than one hundred years after the war, these landscapes are the last living witnesses of this global crisis, and this awareness came with a renewed interest for landscapes of war since the end of the nineties. This new perspective took the form of new landscape planning projects whose heterogeneity can affect its sensitive aspect and its memory. A willingness of protection through regulations takes shape at the same time. Nevertheless, is a conservation of theses landscapes in this accurate state not going against the development of this land? Through the example of the Chemin des Dames, this thesis suggests some potential solutions to put the landscape as a mediator in the development of a landscape planning project, allowing to both face the societal challenges and value the memory.
