Resumo

The urban space, especially in the metropolitan urban area peripheral countries such as Brazil has undergone many transformations over time. These changes are felt mainly in its space sociopolitical structure, which in turn shows the spatiality of our metropolises, with an emphasis on Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo for being the two largest Brazilian metroplises, however, and concentrators are witnesses of worsening urban problem that is increasing every day in the country. In this sense, we have to consider some aspects, throughout the history of the country, and contributed to , somehow , today, still contribute to the worsening of problems related to the increase in urban violence, especially in outlying areas such as slums, the poorest areas in these cities . We conclude that a fair and guarantor of a good quality of life depends urban space of a just society, but the reverse is also true. Overcome the problems associated with urban question emerges not only eliminate social relations that generated, but also overcome the spatiality that induces the reproduction of these relations at all scales, mainly local. These transformations require, in fact, a confrontation of the capitalist civilization model itself without which we cannot aspire to a more equitable social development in these large cities.
