The article analyzes one of the critical points in the history of architecture and urban planning of the late Soviet period. The article reveals the structure and the content of the creative problems that were discussed in 1960s – early 1970s in the context of growing professional and public dissatisfaction with the results of the formation of the new urban environment based on the industrial approach to housing construction. The author shows that the main aims set before the architects and urban planners of late 1920s – early 1930s and of late 1960s – early 1970 were mostly similar. At the same time, absolutely new problems became a subject of a broad discussion: the loss of space commensurable with human beings, the view of historical environment of cities as a source of inspiration for architects, the possibility of creative self-expression in industrial construction. It was the first time, when the city was viewed by the professional community not only in relation with industry, but also with urbanization in a broad sense of the word.
