Discours et savoir faire sur l'aménagement de l'environnement sonore urbain au XIXème siècle

Abstract : The doctoral thesis "Discourse and know-how on urban sonic environment planning in the 19th century" is a dissertation on urban planning. It fowses on space, on edified space as well as lived-in spaces. The following questions are raised : - What is left of the sounds of the oast and is there steil a sensitivity towards the sonic environment of the 19th century ? - Can we describe the sonic climate of the past ? Can we recall the sonic memory of the 20th century and point out the particular conditions which helped the theme of excessive noise to emerge, so characteristic of our century ? - Can we understand how the planners of the past organized space taking into consideration the sonic dimension without the tools of current metrology ? The word is organized into three major parts. The first section compiles literary works of the romance period (19th century and early 20th century) from Stendhal to Proust. The second is an empirical study of noise in cities specifically focused on Lyon during the 19th century. The thesis then examines how planners of this same period dealt with the sonic dimension during the end of the utopic 18th century up through most recent architectural period regarding public edificies, private dwellings or public spaces.
