This article aimed at introduce and offer a thought to the direction establishment of the theory of Urban Spatial Articulation developed and based on the theory of Articulation of Mode of Production—a theory in the realm of macro sociology that offers an assumption that social formations in “periphery” are controlled, at least, by the articulation of two modes of production, i.e capitalist mode of production and pre-capitalist mode of production in which one dominates the other. To understand this theory well, at the beginning of the discussion it is described some significant concepts, then a description of the result of two studies on urban spatial articulation in two urban commercial areas, each of which has the different physical character. The first was a study of urban spatial articulation that occur at a shopping street. While the second, is a study of urban spatial articulation formed in a wholesale market area, where both are located in Makassar City. Both used the theory of articulation of urban spatial as a theoretical foothold, which was collaborated with Lefebvre’s theoretical concepts of production and reproduction of space that expected could support the establishment of the theory of Urban Spatial Articulation.
