Les citoyens-artisans dans la ville.

Réflexion sur la production symbolique et matérielle de l’espace public.

Kevin Clementi | 11.10.2021

This article reviews the book L’espace public artisanal by Thomas Riffaud (2020). The book offers an interesting point of view by focusing on the figure of the « artisan », a citizen who by his appropriation of public spaces participates in their production. The volume is composed of three parts that describe this ideal-type, and the contours of his action in the contemporary city. Three case studies are also proposed in the last chapter. In this article, we review [...]
