After the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Paris is now planning the Olympics for 2024. The Olympics thus form a veritable common thread between the two global cities and call for questioning their convergence and their dissimilarities. Are Paris and Tokyo experiencing similar real estate dynamics? Are they facing the same challenges? Do they provide the same political responses?
This session thus tends to confront the urban trajectories of Paris and Tokyo from a critical reflection on the real estate dynamics that animate the two capitals. As such, real estate is not simply a matter of the production of buildings: it constitutes the living environment of a predominantly urban population, and partly determines the size of households, the number of children, consumption practices, the dynamics of mobility, lifestyles... In this sense, real estate is the marker of multiple economic and structural transformations, affecting as much the economy as demography, planning, sociology, the environment, or public policy again.
This session aims to reflect on the future of our societies and their horizon of collective desirability based on an analysis of contemporary real estate dynamics in Paris and Tokyo.
