Abstract: 

The article contains information about transformation of the functional structure of Berdychiv from the second half of the XX century to the beginning of the XXI century. Attention is focused on a turning point in the development of functional space, specifically the transition from command-administrative to market economy in the 1990s. The analyze focuses on a permanent transitional period of town development during the XX century and the beginning of the XXI century, when new forms of functional and spatial structure arise and simultaneously the old structures still continue to exist. Factual evidence demonstrates the influence of dynamic and continuous processes of territorial functional transformation on the development of the mosaic functional space of the town. The study revealed an impact of both advanced service sector development (primarily trade, banking, insurance and credit activities, public services and catering) and a reduction of the role of large industry on the town space. Space transformations, identified in Berdychiv, are connected with the change of prevailing functions. The authors revealed the main type-forming features of territorial use according to the territorial functional load, offered classification of the service facilities of various kinds within the limits of the study area according to the determined criteria, and identified the spatial transformation cores and their impact on the spatial modernization within the town of Berdychiv.
