Spatial justice refers to ensure the public's equal rights and interests of space with the aim of meeting the requirements of the different groups of people through proper value guiding, planning, and institutional supervision in the process of space production and space resource allocation. Its scope includes material, spiritual and social spaces such as transportation space, living space, consumption space and interaction space. Spatial justice is defined as providing a critical perspective for observe, identify and ameliorate the injustice phenomena such as unequal distribution of public resources and the spatial marginalization of the disadvantaged. Based on the theory of spatial justice, this paper is organized according to the logic of "basic research, theoretical research, framework construction, instance verification". Firstly, through the review of related research and literature, this paper explores the connotation and value of spatial justice in urban regeneration. Secondly, this paper summarizes the value guidelines of material, spiritual and social spatial justice through literature research and evaluation elements extraction, and builds a framework for improving spatial justice: observe, match, and create. According to the proposed value guidelines, the urban spatial injustice phenomenon is comprehensively analyzed from three scales: city, region, and neighborhood, as well as different spatial types such as transportation space, residential space, public space, and living space. Finally, the Guangzhou Racecourse will serve as the research object for a study of regeneration strategies. By investigating the background and current situation of the racecourse, it is found that the Racecourse suffers from uneven distribution of rights-of-way, housing disparity, space publicness lacking, facilities for the disadvantaged deficiency. According to the injustice issues and residents' needs, the most appropriate values are matched among the value principles of spatial justice as the project's final vision, include accessibility, inclusion, diversity, and community. Additionally, it serves as a guide when formulating regeneration strategies to address each of the aforementioned four aspects. These include Transport justice, protection of pedestrian rights. Housing justice, a mixed community. Public space justice, public space with complex functions. Facilities justice, high-quality facilities for the disadvantaged. Propose regeneration design strategies according to the city to neighborhood scale to provide a reference for III enhancing the spatial justice of the racecourse. It is intended that it would provide new ideas and directions for the city to improve spatial justice.
