The aim of this paper is to show how, in the design of public spaces of the Olivais Sul housing program [Lisbon, 1959- c.1965] a unique experience of the so-called “integration of the arts” was promoted, bringing together architects, artists and other professionals to work as team in a way that could be described today as interdisciplinary. This experience is described and contextualized in national and international levels.
