Abstract : In thirty years, the popularity of walking in the city has fostered hope for a model of more serene urbanity. This paper examines this model by focusing on the staging of ambiances in public spaces in Québec and in France. After recounting the major trends and explaining the criticism that they can generate, we will question the way it is personified in the pedestrians’ everyday life. Based on two examples from field studies carried out in Montreal and in Grenoble, we will qualify the paradox of serene ambiances and the arts of moving, as well as the impressions that they create.
