Abstract : The early twenty-first century goes though a fast-changing process that shapes the world through multiply dynamics generated by globalization. This context has transformed the economic, political, social and cultural configuration of cities worldwide and in virtually all human activities and disciplines such as urban planning. Nowadays, cities are trying to keep or enhance a strategic position on the international scene, by developing a strategic urban planning. A new "strategic" concept was born called "deterritorialized" urban project, in the form of a transposable formula worldwide. This thesis focuses on the deterritorialization of cultural projects and in particular those from the Guggenheim Foundation.The "deterritorialized" projects are defined by major international developers transposing them into different cities as strategies that produce benefits to the cities, and vice versa. This allows developers to increase their cross-border activities by exploiting the potential of the international market. What is the nature of such a project? What are the conditions required for their import?Globalization has led to a universalized reproduction of urban projects which are based on a model of networked production. The networking of this model requires the exchange of know-how and expertise combined in order to transfer the project to different cities. What dialectic is established between the global and the local scales? Is it a "glocal" scale? According to what procedures this project can be deterritorialized?This raises several questions on how to design new urban projects. How does it change urban governance? To answer this question, we propose to explore a symptomatic case of the Guggenheim’s network in three different cities: New York, Bilbao and Guadalajara.
