      Content of Learning Activity

      The course will develop an immersive approach to the several planning projects's history of brownfields sites of large scale. This progressive immersion will result in an analysis of these operations's product (various working documents : mapping, planning at different stages, meeting minutes, explanatory notes, etc. ), accompanied by theoretical interludes, in the form of conferences, interventions by researchers or resource people.

      Course Outline
      Introduction to the housing's anthropology : highlighting the links between architecture and humanities
      * potentially in support of the internship or the thesis, exploring and analyzing the methods of involving residents/users in the project's process.

      Exploring the concepts of housing, living and habitability
      * differentiating housing and home, asking habitability and the live's ability
      * taking into account the intimate, family and symbolic habitat's dimensions

      Understanding the actors's sets in the process's project
      * analysing the actor's sets of case studies, reconstituting the skateholders's map of each project, considering alternative scenarios

      Intersecting perspectives and investigating the complementarity of the two approaches
      * confronting the points of view between students, supported by feedback from resource people
      * objectivising the richness of the skills's complementarity, to be translated into the future portage of participatory approaches
