A la recherche d'un coin de paradis? Paroles habitantes au Clube de Campo Alvorada, Aldeia (Camaragibe - PE, Brésil)

Abstract : Clube de Campo Alvorada was a week-end country club when it originally opened back in the Sixties. Inhabitants of Recife have been progressively taking residence in this place over the recent years. Around ten in-depth interviews were carried out with new users in order to identify what is motivating the seek for this new way of residency. The idea of a dreaming place, like a kind of paradise is redundantly omnipresent. Organisation, order and security are essential to protect this paradise. Although social homogeneity is equally paramount in order to keep the place peaceful, the members express more a community of interests than a community of affinity. Moreover, the residential scale is primarily the scale of the space which the inhabitants can keep control of, although they might complain the management modes. Lastly, there is sometimes a gap between the dream of living there and the disappointments of the day to day routine. The inhabitants' words are also made of this disillusion that appears as time goes.
