La France redessinée ? : Espaces et territoires de loisirs dans la seconde moitié des années 1960

Abstract : The 1960s in France were a decisive decade in the development of leisure facilities. A major study of behavior patterns relating to leisure sought both to establish the demand for facilities and to develop innovative recommendations based on those results. First, the study introduced the concept of variability associated with leisure. In addition, the study's authors defined the social function of leisure as the encouragement of community cohesion. Lastly, they explored the structural influence of leisure facilities on cityscapes and urban living. Specifically, leisure activities had to compensate for urban lifestyles and to promote a connection with nature. Proposals of the period participated in a broad transformation of cultural practices related to leisure. Leisure choices played an active role in urban restructuring and cities' expansion into surrounding areas.
