Abstract : Situated between sociology of action and anthropology of communication and language, the thesis intends to verify the hypothesis of a collective tooling for building the city. It is based on the ethnography of four participatory processes in different urban projects situated in the Paris metropolitan area, ranging from the eco-project to the urban renewal project. The first part of the thesis retraces the history of the emergence of the participation, mainly from the point of view of the understanding and the recognition of the city and its inhabitants. It shows how a framework for action when building the city becomes a participative process of collective investigation. The face-to-face becomes a double space of “projétation”. Understanding this needs to develop a socio-anthropological approach.The second part analyses the constraints that the inhabitants have to deal with: it insists on the various framings that contribute very strongly to the definition of the participative offer (organized within the framework of a public order or a research action). These constrains are situated (and can be read) at the same three participative activity levels (interactional, organizational and political), with further complexity for the collective process. Using a pragmatist analytical frame, the third part attempts to describe how the participation process remodels the resources of the face-to-face exchange, and how it builds ways to devise/engage in the participation process. It insists on the obstacles and the levers of a collective tooling of the process. The ethnographical study allowed to identify different possible redefinitions of the situation available to the actors.
