We aimed to analyze the spatial logic and the banking sector modernization processes in the period 2000 to 2016, considering the main two-dimensional analytical plans unfold: the first refers to the impact of modernization processes in the banking sector, through computerization of their technical structures, their spatial logic in Campinas, or imposes the question: what is the space demanded by the banking sector and what the spatial structure generated? The second dimension analysis relates to the study of the impact of modernization of the banking sector and the space technification in spatial practices of the users of banking services, as these computer services reverberate strongly in the management of everyday life, more and more standardized, redefining the use of time and space in Campinas. So we start from the hypothesis that changes in the spatial logic of banks relate directly to the computerization process of the sector, reflecting markedly in their organizational logic in cities and spatial practices of its members.
