dc.description.abstractThe present research intends to study and understand the problematic of the requalification of the public spaces in territories of high level of urban fragmentation. This phenomenon affects contemporary cities and takes place, essentially, by the forms of urban growth confronted with topographic factors and strong infrastructural presence. In this sense, we understand that the great advances of knowledge and technology, over the last two centuries, have caused profound changes in the urban landscape of the contemporary western cities. These transformations in the territory caused by the effects of the Industrial Revolution, mainly in 19th century, development of the railway systems which are assumed as an important socio-economic factor for the region they serve. However, its rigidity and low permeability has contributed to the creation of disarticulate spaces, only a few points of interface and relationship with the land crossing. On the other hand, the fluidity and permeability of road networks allow the rapid rise of these in the urban space. In the second half of the 20th century, it emphasizes a greater variety of functions at street level, where it reveals new ranges and road hierarchies. Thus, the street gains new meaning, assuming as a public space of greater complexity where there is a greater ambiguity of its areas and forms of control. The urban design trends have pointed to a broad and inclusive accessibility, masking many of the forces that promote arrays. It is therefore important to understand how the public spaces contribute effectively to social and economic cohesion. And, in this way, it appears the need to explore the boundaries and rules of use of these spaces beyond the constraints of their public / private control. It is this duality that we confront registration property, infrastructural barriers, difficulties in managing, sharing and overlapping of their areas. Thus, there is a need to increase public space requalification policies that consider systems of evaluation and project orientation supported by an operational sustainability. Where promote intervention strategies with interdisciplinary compromises and recognition of public space as dialog space and mediation of interests. In this way, a methodological support for research development is outlined, with a systematization of the theoretical problems of framing the design processes, the impact of accessibility infrastructures and the public space in fragmented territories. In this, emphasis is placed on understanding and critical reading on the operational capability of sustainability policies. For this, we proceed to historical cartography analysis, legislation and urbanization processes as key study and evaluation tools. In this context, it is assumed Campolide in Lisbon, as a territory test for defining a set of strategies that articulate the issues of urban fragmentation, with new types of public space and contemplating guiding factors for a sustainable intervention. In this perspective, a greater sensitivity to a landscape supported in various infrastructure systems is intended, which aims to better use of green systems and agricultural productivity by integrating them in urban renewal processes
