Rêvons la ville

« Rêvons la ville ». Cette parodie depuis longtemps nous passionne, laissant place à  l’imaginaire et à la réflexion logique rationnelle. Cette réflexion ne présente pas juste une utopie mais une vérité et une demande interne de vivre mieux en harmonie avec la nature.

Dans l’histoire Grecque, Aristophane se moquait d’Hippodamos et de la construction au cordeau de la ville de Millet dans la pièce « Les Oiseaux » (414 av.JC) : « Je prendrai mes dimensions avec une règle droite que j’applique de manière que le cercle devienne carré. Au centre il y aura une place publique, où aboutiront des rues droites convergeant vers le cercle même et, comme d’un astre lui- même rond, partiront en tous sens des rayons droit ». Les sages de l’époque fuyaient une cité trop rationnelle, devenue invivable, pour fonder, entre ciel et terre, une ville sans contraintes. Aujourd’hui, organisons-nous encore notre ville sur cette logique mesurée sans prendre une âme particulière à une telle définition ?

Aujourd’hui nous parlons de nouveau des Green Cities, que cache cette notion ?

Une ville qui respire correctement sans le poids des nuages de pollution industrielle ou urbanistique capable de l’étouffer avec le temps.

Une ville capable de gérer ses terres chargées par l’histoire industrielle lourde grâce à une dépollution à la source de son milieu (bactérie capable  de manger la pollution métallique et ou encore des plantes qui digèrent la pollution anthropique).

Une  ville capable de caresser le visage de soleil et absorber le vent grâce à l’installation sur le dos de ses bâtiments des plateaux capable d’accueillir les rayons de soleil comme pour construire une sorte de dialogue de Platon : l’image de bien être pour faire fonctionner la ville indépendamment de toute une autre sorte d’énergie ….

Un fonctionnement idéologique et utopique où le bien être de soi et la bonneté et la paix envers les autres ne peux se séparer d’une technologie avancée.

L’essentiel peut être là mais nous n’oublions pas que l’essentiel est toujours l’homme en harmonie avec son système technologique développant et sa nature.

Une image qui reste gravée dans ma mémoire est celle de Beyrouth, pendant les conflits de 2007. Cette ville meurtrie par les conflits où ses rues et ses plages souffrent de la dernière marée noire,  où son centre-ville et ses bâtiments portent encore les traces des balles de la guerre civile comme pour rester témoins des bêtises de l’homme. Ce jour-là, le 20 juillet 2007 j’ai senti Beyrouth comme une ville fatiguée et accablée par la guerre, cherchant désespérément à oublier son passé et à retrouver sa joie de vivre. Aujourd’hui, j’ai une pensée également pour toutes les autres villes qui subissent la guerre, et où le conflit leur efface une partie identitaire.

Et comment allons-nous reconstruire de nouveau ? Comment nous allons, avec nos technologies européennes, avancer et revisiter ces villes souffrant de la guerre ainsi que d’une planification urbaine non étudiée. Il y a la nécessité d’une construction d’un dialogue humain et technologique pour que nous avancions mais aussi et pour que ces villes avancent.

Une phrase qui m’interpelle est une phrase de Michel Ragon tirée de l’ouvrage « L’homme et les villes » (1995) : « Tout le monde rêve d’une cité idéale. Sauf ceux qui considèrent comme satisfaisante la ville qu’ils habitent. Mais ils sont rares. Aussi rares que ceux qui trouvent parfaite la société dans laquelle ils vivent. Le philosophe dans sa bibliothèque et le déraciné dans son bidonville rêvent d’une ville qui puisse satisfaire aussi bien leur quotidienneté que leurs fantasmes. »

IES Ethical Code

The IES ethical Code

About the founder

The city of our dreams. It’s a passionate subject. Thinking about it, it’s a bit like imagining a Paradise. Logical thinking often leaves room for imagination; each of us has a vision of our own. The city of our dreams is an ideal, without an existent common project.

 An Ancient Debate

 

 

In the play “The Birds” (414 BC), Aristophanes and Hippos have a conflict over two opposing vision of the ideal city:

            That of a city built according to a mathematic and orderly approach

            And that of a city that puts humans first and foremost

 

The Dream of a Green City

 

What do we imagine, when we think of the concept of a Green City?

            a city free of the weight of industrial pollution?

            a city capable of regenerating its soil previously contaminated by source pollution?

            a city able to harness the sun and wind as an energy source?

Therefore, the “the smart city” would be an ideal founded upon clean technology.

Nevertheless, the cities of the future cannot be reduced to simply a technologic approach.

 

Innovation Isn’t Necessarily Entirely Rooted in Technology

 

My grandmother took care of her 14 children, all the while dealing with a war that has yet to cease. She has continued to innovate to adapt to a quotidian life marked by a lack of water and electricity.

My mother had to face war during her daily life, as well. She had to find original solutions  with sparse resources so that we could escape the situation.

 

In India, Africa, and various countries ravaged by war, people constantly innovate. But these “smart” solutions are often quite costly. We have much to learn from people of these countries. The future of our cities could also profit from their knowledge, and these “frugal” innovations.

 

Putting Man First and Foremost in the City of Tomorrow

 

Before 1975, Beirut had been a cosmopolitan city that breathed life. Today, Lebanon’s capital bears the scars of a civil war. It is an exhausted city, that desperately wishes to reclaim its colorful energy and life it once had. Beirut doesn’t want to be “smart” ; Beirut wants to find its soul, its joy. It isn’t looking for technology, but a guarantee that everyone can live and share in harmony. Above all, it is a human project. It’s a dream that is also shared by cities such as Damascus, Baghdad, or Tobruk.

 

The Tower of Babel

The city of tomorrow can be built around increasingly high towers, inhabited by people  who don’t necessarily understand each other, even if a common language has been found. The myth of Babel is a cautionary tale, warning us of the dangers of a purely technological project.

 

It is incredibly important to put people at the heart of our urban plans. The challenge is to create links, harmony, and joy amongst the inhabitants of our cities, so that they may become places of peace, joy, happiness, and well-being for all.
