Introduction. The beginning of the third millennium is marked with the powerful implementation of IT technologies in all spheres of the modern society life, in particular, for the transformation of the spatial or-ganization of the city as a whole.
Problem Statement. The functional and socio-planning organization of the territory of Ukrainian cities, as formed during the industrialization period of the 1930s and the restoration of the national economy period of the 1940s and 1950s, has been increasingly contradicting the general world trends in the formation of a modern comfortable living environment and needs to be reformed.
Purpose. The purpose of this research is to identify trends in the formation of the urban space functional planning organization during the post-industrial period of society development and directions for the transformation of the territory and buildings from the existing condition into an innovation-based city.
Materials and Methods. Systematization of results of the analysis of scholarly research pub-lications, legal framework, and information sources in the field of urban design during the post-industrial period of society development; graphoanalytic method of design and planning documen-tation analysis; structural and logical modeling.
Results. The evolutionary stages of the transformation of the “ideal” city paradigm from Re-naissance cities to modern “smart” and “innovation-based” cities have been characterized. The con-ceptual differences in the formation of the spatial organization of the smart and the innovation-based city have been identified; the featu res of horizontal and vertical urban space polyfunctionali-zation have been formulated. The principles and recommendations for the possible transformation of the Ukrainian cities territory have been developed.
Conclusions. The key principles for the formation of the human comfortable and safe living environment evol ve in strict accordance with the engineering, technological, and social basis of the society development. The current stage is characterized by the active implementation of the cutting-edge IT technologies in all spheres of
life, causing the need to transform the urban space from the monofunctional use of territories to the horizontal and vertical polyfunctionalization. Such trends shall be enshrined in the legislative and regulatory framework of urban planning for the further im-plementation into the reconstruction practice of Ukrainian cities.
