Abstract : Relying on research experiments and theories from the Western American and Chinese urban sociology, the thesis contributes to the understanding of Chinese urban society current mutations through the observation of the housing question in Beijing viewed from the side of the homebuyers. Promoted by the reforms, the expansion and the privatization of the housing sector, this trend appears to meet the enthusiasm of households, more and more numerous to access these new private prosperity spaces. Looking for 'good life' and social distinction, accepting to drastically change their ways of life and move away from the Centre, the emerging middle classes participate actively, with more or less happy results, in the transformation of contemporary urban China. The investigation, both semantic (glossary), ethnographic (observation), visual (photos) is mainly supported by the in-situ narratives and, “tales of life” and conversations.
