The purpose of this research paper is to investigate the relationship between culture and urban space using the two Venezuelan cities of Ciudad Guayana and Barquisimeto as examples. Using the systemic approach Regional Culture as a method of research, the complex interdependencies between culture and space have been taken into account by integrating existing key concepts in a holistic way. In its centre are the actors with their values, perceptions and actions. The central goal of the empirical part of the work was to examine the influence of urban structures and development on regional culture. In both cities a clear social and spatial polarization / fragmentation was proven. Rapid urban growth has become a dominant factor in both cities. This had led to increasing inhomogeneities of urban sectors. - (IfL)
