Dominique Lorrain is CNRS emeritus research professor at the Laboratoire Techniques, territoires et sociétés (Latts), and the École des Ponts ParisTech.
With environmental urgency facing us everywhere, innovative urban projects to reduce pollution and waste are emerging around the world.
But how useful are these experiences on a global scale?
Is it possible to make a town durable without being detrimental to its surroundings?
This book sets out to explore these questions.
Nouveaux modèles de gestion des ressources
Dominique Lorrain, Charlotte Halpern
Beirut, Cairo, Algiers, Istanbul: have they become ungovernable? Are they too dense, too polluted, too unequal? By delving into the fabric of their networks and institutions, this book shows that the major difficulties of these towns reflect not the lack of government, but rather its specific forms.
Gouverner par les rentes
Confronting the theory of chaos defending that very large cities are ungovernable, the authors attempt to show how these XXL cities work and are at the forefront of globalization.
