Abstract. The article reveals a trend of considering the concept "region" from the standpoint of constructivism. It is shown that if the ideas of the "container" way of organizing space were inherent in the modernity type of culture, then updating of methodological approaches leads to formation of a new spatial paradigm. It is characterized by consolidation of a view on the region as a constructed phenomenon, "geoconcept", rethinking of the concept "border" associated with the region, characteristics of the region as an open structure and system of relations.
Key words and phrases: пространство, регион, конструкт, конструктивизм, геоконцепт, культура постмодерна, space, region, construct, constructivism, geoconcept, culture of post-modernism.
