One of the powerful perspectives that studies spatial developments from the perspective of political relations and power is the political economy of space, which, by criticizing capitalist relations, considers the formation of spaces and their developments in order to facilitate capitalist relations. In other words, neoliberal strategies that are rooted in the psyche of cities today and have almost certainly been integrated with the mechanisms of the capitalist system, have reproduced urban spaces closely under the influence of political and economic forces to facilitate capitalist relations; Therefore, the production of space is a phenomenon in order to strengthen the relations of accumulation, turnover, profit, etc. as the main components of capitalism. Therefore, the logic of political economy has always been emphasized as an inevitable thing for the genealogy of any kind of bias towards the urban future of Tehran; A future that has been transformed into a city of "Mall" on a bed affected by the transformation of the urban space. Therefore, the question arises that what is the reason for the sudden emergence of "large commercial complexes and Mall" as an emerging phenomenon in Tehran? And what is the process of its formation? The dominant strategy in this research is a qualitative strategy based on the problem defined in the researcher's mind. The research method is descriptive-explanatory with emphasis on critical discourse analysis method.
