The article considers residential planning and development in Western Siberian cities during 1945 - 1955. The author reviews the impact of socioeconomic factors on residential development in the region. The methodology of the study is based on comprehensive analysis of documents from the state archive and museum, as well as from periodicals, literature, and Internet resources. The study has enabled the author to reveal reasons behind the emergence of various types of residential buildings in the region during that period, to identify objectives for residential development and solutions to them in urban contexts, and to review the implementation of the main provisions of the General Plans and residential development practices in Western Siberia. The results may be useful in preparing lecture courses on the history of architecture of the Soviet period and may provide a basis for further research.
