In recent decades, the concept of "globalization" has changed the political-economic and socio-cultural structure worldwide. This concept has caused the actions and developments of a point in the world to affect other parts of the world. The emergence of this new concept gradually created new spaces and great changes in human attitudes toward space. Globalization, which was initially used and accepted at a slow pace, seems to has had a profound effect on urban public spaces in recent years due to the growth of technology and the practical change in the concepts of time and place. During these years, the frequent and rapid display of urban spaces around the world, which has been provided due to the global era and its communication facilities, has caused fundamental differences in the design of new public spaces and on the other hand, in the presence and use of these spaces. Because it has directly affected the culture of societies. The purpose of this study is to identify the important factors influencing the evolution of urban spaces during globalization. This article uses a qualitative meta-analysis method to present a proposed model to improve the planning and design of public spaces in the global era and tries to express an analysis beyond what has been presented so far with qualitative techniques and taking into account global/local policies and standards. In data analysis, the obtained data are proportionally included in the theoretical framework of the research (dimensions of globalization, urban public spaces). These dimensions are considered as predefined codes in the research and the data are analyzed based on these codes. The results show that inter-global/local interaction is the most important issue that will affect the quality of public spaces in global cities. This interaction takes place in global/local dynamics, global standards, and inherent indigenous talents.
