Les tiers-lieux et espaces de coworking en Drôme et en Ardèche : entre utopie villageoise et métropolisation

Abstract : Originally associated to big cities’ centres, coworking spaces have been blooming in rural regions and small towns over the past five years. In their vast majority, coworkers have experienced recent residential migrations with relocation from big cities to rural regions, though they maintain professional and social ties with cities. The emergence of coworking spaces in rural areas can thus be interpreted as an indicator of the continuing extension of metropolisation phenomena at regional and national level. However, the coworkers’ ways of living also testifies from distinctive forms of inhabiting and practicing the territory. Although their uniqueness can be contested, those ways of living are nonetheless experienced as spatial and biographical transitions proceeding from a refusal both from the metropolitan and the peri-urban ways of life. Finally, coworking spaces seem to promote a particular spatial anchorage in which local resources are particularly valued, though combined with forms of “distanced belonging” (Sencébé, 2004), plural and multilocalised.
