Explanation of the reasons behind changes of urban space, and how symbols and processes emerge in it has been among the topics that have constantly been studied in scientific research. It is clear that political institutions and political figures are key players in spatial construction and changes. Cities, as very important human constructs in geographical space, are shaped by political structures and based on political ideologies. In this regard, this research has been conducted with a descriptive and analytical approach to elaborate the most important political processes involved in construction of urban spaces. The findings of this research reveal that actions of institutions and political actors have direct impact on distribution of scarce resources such as land and facilities. These political powers can also significantly affect urban financial structure, civil rights, urban laws, control of territories, development of urban residencies and urban landscapes and symbols.
Keywords: City, Politics, Geographical space, Ideology
