The research approaches walking as an artistic performance and urban experience that provokes and reestablishes every day habits. Rethinking the urban space in terms of its anthropological and perceptual attributes and not only of its geometrical or morphological characteristics is the main focus of the paper. The hypothesis is that walking as a kinesthetic urban performance can affect the way of perceiving and experiencing the contemporary urban environment.
