De la nature à vendre : fabrique urbaine et construction d'extra-territorialité à Recife (PE, Brésil)

Abstract : The new trends of the real estate market in Recife (PE, Brazil) sketch up the current dynamics of the city-making process. The integration of a topic like nature in the design and offer of the gated communities programs reveals the way the process of city-making is regenerating itself within the insular and fragmented metropolis. This paper intends in the first hand to highlight the recent move in their marketing rhetoric by the property developers. Then various examples (description of several condomínios fechados in or just out of town, city official stand or dwellers' quotations) shall illustrate the regeneration of the motivations which underlie the city-making of the fragmented metropolis by calling nature and leisure like the new ideals for living. Either through the conception and promotion of the programs or out of the dwellers' quoted feelings the recurrence of the rhetorical figure of extra-territoriality highlights the general move toward this way of living.
