Contemporary research in various fields of science is in need of better ways for representing objects and processes without any unreasonable simplification of their structure whilst making provisions for the ignoring of certain properties (probably, essential) of processes and phenomena investigated. Modern-day architecture – from objects and fragments to complete city spaces - is a complex system underpinned by synergy principles, which should not be ignored when developing an urban environment and designing new objects in it. An awareness of synergy principles influences the architectonic representation of an urban environment, which allows town-planning concepts to be developed taking into account new materials, technologies and opportunities.

Key words: synergy principles, urban city environment, forms
