Des modèles aux mythes urbains : L’exemple du projet River to River à New York

Abstract : Globalised urbanism imposes itself on the world at standardized points or places (e.g. highway, shopping mall, airports, etc). However, alongside these global "points of reference" urban projects also develop from local, inherited, ideals and influences. Taking this into account, how do urban spaces develop from this fabric of reference points? Could we speak about urban homogeneization? The hypothesis is that there is a diversification of urban space created from local reinvention of the multiplicity of imported and/or inherited influences..
