The attempt to create cultural spaces within urban areas is an important element of the urbanization process in contemporary cities. The campus of the Częstochowa University of Technology is a particular example of functional-spatial shaping of an urban structure. Inscribed in the context of the urban structure of the city, it creates an efficiently func- tioning organism. Its integration with the wider context of urban space is ensured by two public utility buildings - symbols of the cultural space of the academic campus. The first of these is the 'Polytechnic Club' built in the 1960s, currently the Academic Centre of Culture and Sports. The second object is the complex of buildings of the Personal Academic Parish realized in 2009. These selected examples are separated by 50 years between construction. They present an open, direct architecture which gives the area a chance to function properly. The durability of these solutions strengthens the potential of the urban structure.
