Mobility infrastructures

Units : LoUIsE - Landscape, Urbanism, Infrastructures and Ecologies | ULB740

Description :

Mobility management in metropolitan areas become increasingly important in urban transformations and politics. LoUIsE analyses the
historical development of mobility infrastructure, their structuring function in the transformation of metropolitan areas and
their contemporary uses. The works of Judith le Maire on urban walking in the early 20th century, the thesis of Géry Leloutre on the
urban modernist heritage of Brussels around infrastructure, the thesis of Claire Pelgrims on the tension between imaginaries of
fast and slow mobilities in the evolution of mobility infrastructure, and the thesis of Yannick Vanhaelen on the entanglements
between cultural institutions and mobility infrastructures are few examples. Those researches contribute to a deep understanding of
the dynamics that transforms Brussels metropolitan area during the 20th and 21st centuries.
