- Published in Book : Planning and Designing Sustainable and Resilient Landscapes
- Abstract in English : Improving the quality of life in urban areas, including its landscape dimension, became a common objective of development strategies for all urban / metropolitan areas, reflected in their mobility policies.
The majority of big cities undertake more and more extensive urban operations for reshaping mobility and its infrastructure, that often generate the most complex dynamics of urban landscape renewal: from the establishment of intermodal hubs or organizing network of trams, which are the central axis of major landscaping redesign (Strasbourg, Paris, Freibourg, Los Angeles etc.), to the partial or total covering or burial of large roads (Paris, Boston etc.), they bring unprecedented opportunities for landscaping large urban spaces and areas.
The renaissance of "urban boulevard" concept shows too the willingness to reconcile and reharmonise all different hypostasis of the street: from that of infrastructure (corridor of movement) to those of urban landscape and community space, generating functional and spatial restructuring of important roads, with marked landscape valences.
