L'art des sentiers métropolitains

Sold out 08 July 2020
Book only in French

Over the past 20 years, long-distance walking itineraries in urban and suburban environments have emerged successively in Bordeaux, Milan, Marseille, Paris, Istanbul, London, Tunis, Avignon, Toulon, Liège, Charleroi, Cologne, Athens, Boston...

Inheriting artistic approaches, metropolitan pathways are perennial facilities that claim an urban planning dimension. These collective works of urban planning craftsmanship are created by those who draw, produce, photograph, survey and tell their stories.
Alongside other social movements - such as urban agriculture or transitional urban planning - metropolitan hiking is changing our ways of living. By allowing us to reconnect with the physical space at the epicenter of the ecological crisis, these trails contribute to imagining the post-oil city.
