Mentality is a relatively stable set of vital installations of the individual or society. The originality of the mentality of Siberian inhabitants has been determined by a number of factors (historical, climatic, political). A set of economic and political processes has led to an uncontrolled growth of the city suburbs at the expense of private zones, including unauthorised construction. Residential outskirts of Krasnoyarsk have low aesthetic quality, which is explained by the peculiarities of the mentality of the inhabitants of Siberia. Over time, the outskirts of the territory become marginalised sections of society. In the dormitory districts in the periphery of the city boxed-type garages and basements in residential backyards appear. Growth of the city of Krasnoyarsk has led to margin entered by the main urban fabric. The structure of these territories has acquired a number of characteristics. Russian society is currently experiencing a transition from the old social order to the new one. The administration of the urban development process is not aimed at solving existing problems. Registration of property rights to illegally constructed buildings will only aggravate the situation. The solution of many problems of the city does not refer to the professional competence of an architect, but to a greater extent to the administrative and legal sphere.
