The article considers the features of the visual language of architectural graphics by Yu. S. Ushakov, - the result of annual research expeditions of wooden ensembles of the Russian North (from 1959 to 1969). To identify the regularities of the composition of works organization, Ushakov's graphics were compared with the works of architects, his contemporaries, who were seeking to visually reveal the internal location of architectural objects in relation to the boundaries in the system of linear perspective. Graphical works by Yu. S.

By means of the comparative analysis of works of architects and graphics artists, who were investigating the Russian North, there was implemented the search of sources which could influence formation of the graphic manner of Yu. S. Ushakov (A. A. Alekseev, I. Ya. Bilibin, D. V. Mileev, A. A. Ushin). Archival data and materials are used.
