The paper offers a walk through the everyday landscapes of eastern Paris, from place de la Bastille to place de la Nation, passing through rue du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine. The walk becomes a narration of changes and transformations of landscape in time, with a particular insight on the evolution of the management of most recent or on-going transformations. If knowledge of the historical evolution is essential to understand character, identity, potential and constraints of the places visited, the most recent transformations offer inputs for reflection on the different ways of accompanying change, on the aptitude of the actors involved and on the dynamics of the procedures put into place.
