Abstract. The article deals with an imperfect approach to the objects` organization of advertising in the space of Kharkov, leading to an in­depth analysis and study of modern world cities. The identification of practical techniques for the implementation and synthesis of advertising objects with historical and modern urban space leads to their further systematization on the principle of organic synthesis with the environment. Conclusions of this theoretical analysis will become a springboard for a new assessment and rethinking the state of the existing advertising space of Kharkiv with the subsequent improvement of its both aesthetic and functional qualities.

Keywords: design, advertising, advertising space, design object, object­spatial environment, principles and methods of organization.
