Objectives of the Conference

Rendre les villes créatives passe aujourd’hui par la diffusion de nouvelles valeurs, références et projets chez les personnes et communautés qui les constituent. Au niveau des politiques publiques, on constate ainsi l’énoncé de propositions pour acclimater les comportements à de nouvelles logiques de développement, en matière de développement de services éducatifs, culturels, financiers comme d’attractivité de nouveaux talents.

Ce problème est plus rarement posé en partant de l’adéquation à établir entre la ville et son paysage, ce dernier étant entendu à la fois comme visualisation des formes urbaines et expérience quotidienne qu’en retirent ses habitants. Comment les choix temporels qui forgent le paysage (architecture, gestion des droits de propriété etc.) Peuvent-ils ou non renforcer des modes créatifs de pensée et de vivre?  (Xavier Greffe)


Making cities creative requires today the diffusion of new values, references and projects related to the individuals and the communities that constitute them. At the level of public polices, we notice also the announcement of proposals to acclimatize behaviours to new development logics, regarding the development of educational, cultural, and financial services to attract new talents.

This issue is less frequent if we start from the establishment of a mutual relationship between the city and its landscape, assuming the latter both as visualisation of urban forms and as daily experience made by the inhabitants. How do temporary choices, which forge landscape (architecture, property rights management, etc.), reinforce (or not) the  creative ways of thinking and live? (Xavier Greffe, trad. Marco Acri)


We can have different perceptions of landscapes, depending who is concerned about this. The traditional perception of a landscape could be associated with many mythological perceptions, as well as virtual spatiality related to these. Today, people are often too busy to look – apart from some enthusiasts. Recognition of landscapes and/or cultural landscapes as heritage, and that is what they should be, is a learning process. I think that the question is not only about protection of certain landscapes. It is more often than not of continuing to design and develop our ‘environment’ so that the product does not destroy the qualities, but rather enhances them. (Jukka Jokilehto)
