  Abstract: This paper presents a study about the Project Management application in temporary interventions, such as the denominated Parklets, for urban spaces that are forgotten or underutilized by society: residual spaces. These spaces, which undergo transformations, can become safer, more leisurely and convivial spaces; leading to improvements in the users’ lives. This work considers, through the scenario analysis and the carioca legislation for Parklets (Paradas Cariocas: Rio Decree Nº39.983 of April 10, 2015), time, quality and stakeholders as the main variables belonging to this project. This paper presents a hypothetical case study of a Parklet, based on good practices according to the PMI (2013) and the Canvas method. This case study is located in Rio de Janeiro; a city that has undergone several modifications in its urban structure in recent years, due to the Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympics Games.

  Key words: Parklets, Project management, urbanism
