Figures spatiales d'une Z.U.P. : Bellevue, Nantes - Saint-Herblain

Abstract : This chapter is the third in a book on the Bellevue ZUP, also known as Nantes Saint-Herblain, which was a major form of urbanization in the suburbs in the years 1960-1970, years of strong demographic growth and strong urbanization. The book is structured in four parts. While the last three parts tackle life in the dwellings and in the ZUP itself, twenty years after its completion, as well as the plans for its renovation, the first deals with the process of creation and realization of the ZUP: the role of national and local institutions is examined, as well as the conceptual, architectural and urban foundations of the ZUP plan. Chapter 3 focuses on the urban form chosen by chief architect Marcel Favraud. He conceives it at the crossroads of the principles of urban art which remains to him from his training in Beaux Arts and the influence of the doctrine of the modern Movement, in full swing.
