Abstract [en]

There are a number of mundane technologies which shape pedestrian mobility such as pavements,corridors and stairs. In this paper we focus on the practical implications revolving doors as atechnology have for the social organisation of people walking together. Drawing upon videorecordings we analyse the observable intersubjective resources produced and used by membersof the setting when walking through doors, and the interaction between formations of peopleas they do this. Revolving doors are turn-taking technologies that challenge mobile formationsbecause the formations need to disassemble in order to pass through the doors, and thenre-assemble again on the other side. Using an ethnomethodologically guided approach we shedlight on some of the accomplishment of walking together in mobile formations.
