La ville sous le regard d'un enfant; le cas de le Rue du 19 Juin 1965 Constantine

Abstract : The relationship between the child and the city has always been discussed by different researchers from different disciplines around the world. The person-environment relationship becomes an essential axis to be taken into account, the child takes his place, he also becomes a dynamic actor of the urban environment, he in turn explores the city through a rather particular perspective that of the small (child) not that of the large (adult). He does not master spatial concepts, but he has the gift of the builder, the cushioned house in the living room, the tower that he manages to put upright thanks to his lego and wooden cubes, and of course his hidden gift for drawing houses on his pieces of paper; by taking support from his imagination and the environment in which he lives. The child also has the right to the city as an adult does the right to say what he thinks, what he wants, what he needs to be fulfilled and happy; whether inside or outside, in the city. It should be noted that the evolution of children is growing rapidly thanks to the digital age, it is revealed over the years, studies have shown that contemporary children have a say in the city and its environment. How can a city be shaped to be compatible with the child's lifestyle? How does the child schoolboy practice the neighborhood, the street, the school, the city quite simply? Should we take into consideration the views of children in the planning of our urban planners' neighborhoods? And what is the best way to do it? In this article we will try to answer all his questions and lift the veil on the child and his logical practice of the city, as well as try to find ways to give the child the right to the city, the right to life quite simply.
