Urban spaces are mobile spaces, bond up in the movements of people and things through them as well as the promise of future movement and impressions of past movements. These promises and impression draw people through space in particular ways at particular times. Urban spaces are also navigated through the senses – through the use of sensory tactics (de Certeau 1984). This chapter adopts a mobilities and transgenerational approach in looking across time and space at sensory engagements with urban spaces. Drawing from all three cities in the SENSOTRA project, it considers distinctive as well as common sensory tactics across them. Analysing participants’ accounts of their mobilities in urban space through space and time, as interwoven through transgenerational walking together, the chapter opens up discussion of shared senso-mobile tactics as the foundation of urban transformation.
