This article looks at the evolution of the new city of Ali Mendjeli through the prism of ways of living for the last 20 years. The spatial forms of the new city, still unstable and loose, partly produced from the top, face the daily practices of inhabitants. We start from the assumption that the ways of living expresses a living skill: a skill to practice space but also and above all to talk about it. This work is based on the observation and material description of the changes that have occurred in the urbanization of the New City, but also and above all on the analysis of a corpus of interviews carried out between September 2018 and December 2019, which has been compared with the work we have done on the same area in the late 2000.
