Design contributions to territorial development are being recognized more and more. Various theoretical and applied studies, mostly conducted in the European ambit, have permitted discipline specialization in the elaboration of territorial designs. The present article aims at evaluating the territorial design knowledge and knowhow system that is being constructed in Brazil. Therefore, we will present the results of the study of three Brazilian experiences. This investigation shows difficulties and opportunities that are inherent to the Brazilian context, characterized by social and economical dynamics that are rapidly changing. The main result of the study is a set of challenges that the Brazilian scientific community has to face in order to improve the territorial design in Brazil and contribute to the international debate with original elements.
