Conflicts in architectural and planning activities are considered to be a consequence of the lack of essential communication between the participants of the architectural process. Based on a study of the regulatory documents and histories of major architectural projects in Ekaterinburg, the author suggests relevant patterns of communication. These patterns help identify which interactions lack for preventing a conflict and show ways to solve arising problems.

Key words: conflicts, architectural activity, communication in architectural process
