Problem statement. In connection with the reform of higher education institutions in Ukraine, there are no teaching and research materials, which can help to identify systematically and consistently the connection between the function, morphogenesis and cultural and philosophical features of the context of the architectural environment of city. The purpose of the work is to establish the existence of parallel of historical development and indivisible aesthetic, ethical integrity of the theoretical and practical categories of philosophy and architecture. Presentation of the material. The relevance of the work at the moment lies in the fact that there is a need for in-depth study of philosophical problems in the preparation of future architects. Their similarity lies, first of all, in the fact that both disciplines cover almost all areas of human experience, starting with the priestly wisdom of the ancient world, with primitive symbolism. In addition, both spheres of activity and thinking independently, without overlapping, substantiate their methodology and the logic of transfer of experience. The ontological aspect of the study lies in the pre-assumed a priori position: every architect consciously or unknowingly, with the strength and talent, is guided by the purpose indicated in the name of his profession, seeks to present in his work the most expressed and unfolded picture of the universe. Exactly this facility is basis of this target installation that serves as the basis for the whole set of meanings of architecture, a spring for its formation and deployment. An epistemological aspect comes from the ontological aspect. In this aspect, the content and logic of the formation and deployment of architectural space and architectural form are revealed. Culture gives numerous evidence of the close organic connections of philosophy and architecture. It is no coincidence that architects themselves tend to call the architecture of a stone-clad philosophy of their time, as does, for example, Le Corbusier. Points of conflict between philosophy and architecture are diverse. An important role belongs to the personal creative contacts of people of art with philosophers. The level of mastering the course is determined by the ability of masters to navigate in contemporary philosophical schools and directions, the skills of reading philosophical literature, this skill is formed on the general course on philosophy. But these skills are not enough to enhance the theoretical and categorical culture of future architects. More understanding and understanding of the role and place of architecture and architecture in the world, in modern life, awareness of the danger of transforming architecture into pure form-building, indifferent to modern humanitarian and universal values. Conclusion. It turns out that architecture can not be separated from its way of shaping the world for the views of entire generations of architects. That is, the outlook of the era is formed based on the achievements of the world and that is why philosophy assumed the image of architecture and sought to achieve its similarity. So there is a fundamental ambivalence of the philosophy of architecture, without which philosophy can not work.
