This short film presents some of the research results of Cécile Mattoug’s dissertation entitled “Sharing the urban void in metropolitan production. An exploratory approach to the northern suburbs of Paris through the writings of lived experience” (2017-2021 – University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, UMR Géographie-cités and Ademe).
The informal occupations of the Tartres form different living spaces on the wastelands and experience multiple regulations by the bearers of the development. Looking back over six years of investigation, the short film presents the oscillations that the wastelands in the northern suburbs of Paris are experiencing.
