La "ville diffuse" à l'épreuve de l'Histoire : urbanisme et urbanisation dans le Brabant belge

Abstract : This thesis shows that the way in which the history of urbanism is elaborated makes it possible neither to know the past of current “diffuse city” nor to suppose the existence of any “diffuse city” in the past ; it intends then to contribute to a history of urbanization in the broad sense of the word by producing new sources (vol. 3), which are not the archives of urbanism (vol. 2). After analysing the way in which these territories “neither rural nor urban” are apprehended today (chap.1), a physical field is studied in particular : the Belgian Brabant, on four different scales (chap.2 -5). The study leads to a period of important urbanization (1885-1914) but never studied physically because it was not planned : original maps of it have been produced here. The comparison with the current “diffuse city” makes it possible to reconsider this phase of urbanization in Belgian historiography but also to criticize the idea of urban dispersion as the final phase of an urban growth process.
