The compositional techniques in the subject-spatial development of modern architecture, which are used, affects the creation of its image. It is discussed that the way to create and identify the unity in architecture is artistic composition. As a result of the analysis of the artistic image as a process and result of architecture-it is proved that the architectural composition is peculiar to the architectural form artistic creation. It is revealed that the problem of new and old architecture is connected with problems, born of the scientific and technological revolution and the development of urbanism.
