In Lisbon there are many spaces that are undefined, deactivated from the urban structure in the present moment and that can fulfill major ecological, social, cultural and economic functions in the urban context. To give a generic name for all of these often underutilized spaces we proposed the concept of “Espaços em Aberto – A space open to whatever and whenever”. The conditions of “Espaços em Aberto” were analyzed bearing in mind that they are changing “organisms” that lack an identity, form or closed uses, and considering them ideal spaces for the urban regeneration and for the expression of the contemporary urban society. For this analysis, in addition to the conceptual research, the over viewing of projects with similar nature and maps, we used the pedestrian route as a privileged way to experience, contextualize and differentiate the “Espaços em Aberto”, in order to identify opportunities and design interventions. This methodology allowed to process and to integrate as conceptual assumptions the time-space variations and the dynamics of the landscape, both at the natural and cultural systems level. We analyzed in greater detail the “Espaços em Aberto” in the Railway Internal Belt of Lisbon, for its strategic position in the city and diversity of the situations crossed, and we set up opportunities for three sections, based on the circumstances and the specific and unique qualities they represent. For each of these three sections an intervention proposal was projected, understanding it as a process, permanently in evaluation and evolution, and looking ahead the participation of the various entities and urban communities as fundamental elements for its recreation.
