Urbaphobie et désir d'urbain, au péril de la ville




Individual housing is preferred by French people since world war 2, 87 % in 2006. This tendency has given birth to urban sprawl rejected by city-planner because it is a form of non sustainable development. They propose urban politics of densification, "the compact city", which may fail if one does not take into account the social demand.
