Présentation

Fanny Vuaillat is a geographer and planner. She is interested in the ways we inhabit contemporary cities, with work focusing, among others, on strategies for gating and securing residential spaces (France, Brazil). She is now investigating the imaginary and representations of space depending on age, through the impact of ageing processes (north-south migration of young French retirees to Portugal, for instance) or the experience of childhood in a city. The issue of methodology cuts across all her work, with experimentation on the modalities of producing knowledge informed by creative, attentive, relational research. Fanny Vuaillat teaches at the Institute of Town Planning and Alpine Geography (IUGA), where she heads the master’s course in Planning and International Cooperation.

Abstract: 

Le nombre d’ensembles résidentiels fermés et /ou sécurisés croît
dans des contextes socio-spatiaux très divers. En observant ce phénomène à Nantes
(France) et à Recife (Brésil), deux espaces urbains tout à fait dissemblables, nous tentons
de dépasser les effets de contexte afin de mettre en lumière une manière d’habiter les villes
contemporaines. Caractériser ces espaces résidentiels est un préalable nécessaire, tant les
difficultés d’établir une définition précise et internationale sont grandes. Puis, par une démarche
qualitative, visant à recueillir la parole habitante de résidants d’enclaves résidentielles
fermées, nous tentons d’apporter des éléments de compréhension à leur manière
d’habiter. Avec 57 entretiens à Nantes et à Recife, les discours d’existence recueillis ont
permis de mettre en lumière des figures de l’habiter, apportant de nouvelles connaissances
à la réflexion sur les ressorts et la gestion politique de ces complexes immobiliers.

Mots-clés : ensembles résidentiels fermés et sécurisés – condomínio fechado – manière

Resumo
O número de condomínios fechados cresce em contextos sócioespaciais
muito diversos. Observando este fenómeno em Nantes (França) e Recife (Brasil),
dois espaços urbanos completamente dissimilares, tentamos exceder os efeitos de
contexto a fim de revelar uma maneira de morar as cidades contemporâneas. Caraterizar
estes espaços residenciais é uma preliminar necessária, tanto as dificuldades para estabelecer
uma definição precisa e internacional são grandes. Seguidamente, por uma pequisa
qualitativa, visando a recolher o discurso de existência dos habitantes que residem
nos condomínios fechados, tentamos trazer elementos de compreensão às suas maneiras
de morar. Com 57 entrevistas em Nantes e Recife, os discursos de existência recolhidos
permitiram pôr em luz algumas figuras de morar, trazendo novos conhecimentos à reflexão
sobre as dinâmicas da divulgação e a gestão política destes complexos imobiliários.

Abstract
Gated communities are expanding amongst a wide range of social
and territorial contexts. Having watched the phenomenon over two most different urban
environments (Nantes/France and Recife/Brazil) we intend to go past the actual contexts
and point out a new way of living in modern cities. We ought beforehand to qualify these
communities due to the great difficulties of finding a sensible international standard. We
then try to provide some understanding factors of the dwellers ways of living through a
qualitative approach by recording their speech acts of living in gated communities. After
57 interviews in Nantes and Recife, the collected state of being speeches allowed us to outline
some picturing of the ways of living, bringing a new set of knowledge to the study of
the drives and political handlings of this form of residence.
