Abstract: The urban space evolution process was always associated to its role, according to different periods of the town development history. From the static approach, its' understanding passed to the strategic, dynamic, flexible and reactive one, which is no longer possible to integrate into the old spatial planning tools. The urban space takes today the new connotation of the urban ecosystem first, and in the second time of the organic unit, the real living body with its special needs, endowed with morphology, physiology and territorial intelligence. Facing all the stakes which are threatening our future, like the climate change, the hydrous and food stress, the major risks recrudescence, the world energy and financial crisis and, in the same time, the urban population and urbanisation rate rapid growing, the space we need must be at one and the same time a resources supplier, our vital activities protector and a waste receptor. Thus, this paper try to show that there is no more its occupation or use, but rather its capacity of resilience which becomes the most important aspect or parameter to treat by the space planning process today. Some examples of this new comprehension are exposed, included the urban metabolism, integrated network systems or critical logic links approaches, which open the new perspectives for the intelligent spatial planning for the city of tomorrow
