Study fields

The heart of ARCHIVAL-CITY’s approach consists of questioning the concept of urban archives on an international scale. Six fields have been chosen, and for each, one major issue will be examined:



archives displaced due to a colonial context

see more


archiving and indexing over the very long term

see more


how to archive the ephemeral architecture of a city

see more

Greater Paris

the issue of shifting cities and archives to a metropolitan scale

see more


the very high diversity of languages and communities archived

see more


urban disasters and resilient archives

see more

The goal is not to add up the fields, but to use them as starting points for thinking about how cities produce, sort, preserve and use their archives to address classic development issues (extension, urban renewal, managing resources and populations, infrastructures, major facilities, etc.).
