This work main purpose is to create an analytical perspective for how the pedagogical processes forge and govern certain spaces and spatiality. For this, we assume that social practices are modulated by power games that create and recreate them spatially, especially through pedagogical mechanisms that go beyond the formal educational context, increasingly spreading in the contemporary urban scenario. Thus, we propose to analyze the relationship between education and the production of space/spatiality in the practices established on Ibirapuera Park-SP. The investigation has as theoretical framework the thought of Michel Foucault, and mobilizes the works of Doreen Massey, Edward Soja, Henri Lefebvre, David Harvey and Rodrigo Valverde. The mapping performed pleads, therefore, a derivation of the Foucauldian archaeogenealogycal perspective. According to this framework, some practices that enabled to size the pedagogical spatial transformations of the Park since its creation where singed, pointing to the ways in which currently the spatiality govern is made, in equal measure, the contraconducts then made possible. In addition to the literature, we operate according to two complementary work fronts: first, the analysis of official documents about the park, the Processes Commission of the fourth centenary of the city of São Paulo and journalistic discourses about the park conveyed by the newspaper O Estado de São Paulo in different decades; Second, the observation and recording of contemporary practices there in progress. The results show a rationality founded in pedagogical practices, and these, together with specific technologies of government of the spaces. A scenario that presents logics of heterogeneous government, which coexist over time, adjusting, maladjustment or alternating. Nevertheless, a living field of powers, of subjects and subjectivity practices. The archaeogenealogycal history of the Park, as well as the different pedagogical mechanisms there in vogue, allowed to unravel the transit of spaces and the government of the spatialitys by the population that makes use of it, in addition to the different challenges of the previously configured arrangements, marking fleeting traces of an urban heterotopia.
