The study takes into consideration the thoughts of a number of contributors and their approaches to the recent evolution of the Parisian landscape. The anthropologists Alessia de Biase and Piero Zanini speak about landscape and what it represents for those who contemplate it, the architects André Lortie and Mathieu Mercuriali invite one, firstly,  to a reading of the Parisian landscape through tools created by the Land Occupation Plan (POS) and then the Local Urbanism Plan (PLU), and secondly to the attentive observation of architecture produced over the last fifteen years. Finally the document closes with a brief history of the evolution of rules that have governed construction in Paris since the Middle Ages and which have, thus, shaped the Paris we inherit.
