The observation, analysis and construction of cities and forms of mobility are not always in step with the complexity of urban systems and changes in contemporary societies. It is possible to use time as a key to reading the functioning and dysfunctions of cities and as a springboard for new mobilities and sustainable urban development policies. This “chronotopic” perspective makes it possible to approach the complexity of urban systems and reflect on ways of “indwelling” times and mobilities. The researcher, the urban planner, the builder and the citizen are invited to change their outlooks, to think, design and manage the city by simultaneously taking into account urban physicality, flows and timetables in order to imagine, together a “malleable city”, a more human, accessible and hospitable one.
