Strasbourg, entre France et Allemagne. : Structure urbaine et symboliques de la dualité frontalière

Abstract : Strasbourg has changed its geopolitical position through times. The disputed town on the french-german borderland (ville-frontière) has become a french town situated near the german border (ville frontalière). A time of denial and retirement had followed the period when Strasbourg was submitted to political and military powers between the two nations. The contemporary evolution of the intra-european borders gives nowadays Strasbourg a real opportunity for a new development, as the town is gaining a crossborder identity. The paper tries to give an geographical interpretation of this evolution through the spatial organization of three public squares (place Kléber, place de la République and the Jardin des Deux Rives on the Rhine river). They may serve as key elements in the structure of the town history and future.
