La naturbanité, une utopie réalisée par le Parc national urbain de Stockholm ?

Abstract : Through the Stockholm National Urban Park, a reversal of the conservation logic is here considered as a figure of utopia: urban features are not a threat to nature, but urbanity is regarded as the very object worth conserving. By claiming itself as the first city in the world to have established such a "national urban park", Stockholm nurtures the image of an ideal city by creating an innovative urban space. The latter participates in urban identity and it contributes to built a Nordic relation to the world where some a priori contradictory values are condensed into the same place. The result of a strong imbrication between urbanity and naturalness invites us to propose and discuss the concept of naturbanity as the foundation and expression of an utopia carried out in the Swedish metropolis.
