Les communs urbains : perspectives pour la recherche architecturale et urbaine

Abstract : Commons gain new relevance between theoretical reformulations and citizens' initiatives (shared gardens, participatory habitat, open map, third-places, local currencies). These initiatives are experimenting with alternative modes of organization beyond market and institutional logics and looking for ways to collectively manage resources. These are crossings between urban experiments and knowledge being created that this article questions from the results of a study day held in Lyon in the fall of 2015. It points to the challenges incurred by a current common practices for renewal of knowledge "on the city" and "in the city". The article also reviews how the commons research retrructure the field of urban studies and highlights the role of porosity between academic institutions and civil society. Finally, it shows that commons, in terms of underlying social criticism, invite to radically change our research practices
