Born out of an ecologically destructive sectoral economy, post-mining territories have come to be stigmatized as developmentally unsustainable, with lasting effects that still have to be addressed. Fragile, often protected, both visible and invisible territories, they offer a contemporary setting where experimenting with the transition towards a post-carbon society shows itself to be particularly relevant. As metonymical symbols of a world in need of repair, post-mining territories solicit the analyses and prospective contributions of our research disciplines: landscape, architecture and urban planning.

The aim of this new dossier in Cahiers de la recherche architecturale, urbaine et paysagère is to draw an international picture of the most recent contributions which, at the interface of research and project, are interested in post-mining transformations in terms of their spatial, socio-economic, ecological, landscape or aesthetic dimensions.

Building upon works conducted on notions of re-territorialization (Magnaghi, 2003, 2017 ; Poli, 2018), reclamation (Berger, 2002) and recovery (Corner, 1999), the specific questions we seek to put forth are: How does one repair monofunctional territories? In what ways do the tools of the designer, architect, urbanist, landscaper, or artist contribute?
