Milton Keynes, the "Forest City": From the landscape planning to the advent of the car, lessons for the future green infrastructures ?

Abstract : This paper presents the case of the British New Town of Milton Keynes. Programmed in 1967, this true urban laboratory is the setting of numerous experiments. From the origins of green infrastructure in landscape planning to city planning, we will explore how its designers contributed to preserving and creating habitat areas for wildlife. The landscaping project implemented is sophisticated and detailed, designed according to a search for efficiency in a long-term perspective. Milton Keynes foreshadows some of the current challenges related to territorial development and green infrastructure.
