AbstractLecturers: S. Marot and guests. As a guiding principle that remains to be defined, the transition can be critically confronted with broader histories of the environment. The various and even very opposite hypotheses it contains will be differentiated and deepened in the module. In particular that of autonomy will be discuss regarding to the so-called "secession" scenario.
ObjectiveThis session aims to understand how and to what extent environmental concerns can influence urban and territorial design. From a critical point of view, it also intends to question the notion of transition under the prism of its antecedents in ecological thinking.
