The term "megastructure" has been used in architecture since 1960s as the concept of uniform structures and buildings including the whole cities which develop by addition of new modules (units). The city is the megastructure which cells change depending on economic and technological development. Today the city environment is characterized by constructing more and more large buildings and designs, which creates the contradiction between emotional inquiry of townspeople and requirements of economy.
