Abstract The article is devoted to the figurative interpretation and symbolization of new building materials with pronounced reflective properties, especially glass, the use of which has increased significantly in the architecture of the century. Based on the analysis of the process of form creation and the works of Soviet architecture in the late 1950s-1960s, the phenomenon of "dematerialization of space" is revealed, both from the point of view of the physical properties of the architectural form and its deep content.
Keywords: Soviet architecture of the 1950s 1960s, architectural shaping, the universal space and the universe, dissolving space boundaries, the dematerialization of space, pavilion Radioelektronika VDNH, Soviet movies of the 60s
