In the area of Architecture and Urbanism, the proposed theme is related to the socio-spatial implications of "Great Urban Projects" (GPU). Such projects are characterized by the size, specificity of the architectural-urban program and, especially, transformations that induce in the places where they are implanted. Under the context of the social function of architecture and urbanism, one inquires whether the proposition and implantation of GPUs imply producing socially necessary projects. The analysis involves a case study: the Itaquerão or Arena Corinthians. Inaugurated in 2014 in the district of Itaquera, São Paulo city, this football stadium has triggered significant transformations in the immediate surroundings that are reflected in the East Zone of the city. It can be said that this class of spatial intervention is unprecedented in the history of the urban periphery of São Paulo, the research involves documentation of the transformations arising from the installation of Itaquerão in its initial moments. The methodology proposes the development of theoretical-empirical elements related to the subject approach in the field of applied social sciences, especially field research involving questionnaires and interviews. The aim is to contribute to the production of knowledge focused on contemporary space dynamics, to the methodology of architectural-urbanistic projects, as well as to subsidize the formulation of public policies of a territorial character.
