This study focuses on a teaching experience of Architecture Project of the 3rd year of the ISCTE-IUL Integrated Master's Degree in Architecture, held in the first semester of the academic year 2013/2014, in order to reflect on the addressed methodological approaches and the obtained results.

This approach that was retrieved from the architecture project focused on the design of the architecture and landscape as a whole. Architecture thus came to belong to the following fields: organizational, technical and artistic, where the space users had a relevant role. The methodological objective proposed here was to go beyond the description and the survey of the site as the origin of the architecture project and to equate forms of action that go through the organization and elaboration of programmes taking into account people,  landscape and culture.
